Matthew John Oakley was born surrounded by five defunct Coal Mines in Chesterfield, Derbyshire in a snow storm of February 1979. In this crap reboot of Kes, that was Matt’s childhood and adolescence, his Hawk was a family rental TV that could be hooked up to a slew of 80s and 90s heroes from all available universes, from cartoons a plenty, anything by Sensible Software, Eric Cantona, Johnny 5, Vic and Bob and Nirvana, to the Michael’s (Jordan, Jackson, Keaton, Tyson and J.Fox) reading like a who’s who of whom he has ever made artwork about in some roundabout way.
A die-hard dyslexic he’s crafted a professional background in video game art, graphic design, informal and formal education, shoe fitting, amenity horticulture, rock front-manning, care work and retail using his trademark blend of anxiety, rapid Iteration and pipe-based dreams. He’s kind of like the 1992 Olympic USA Basketball Dream Team but if Morrissey was their coach and they were all made to wear those big f**k off platformy metal plated Goth boots. Matt’s Commas4eyes Studio work can be found in Instagram and in various locations around the globe.

Button Badge Motif Print Series features selected designs from Stereohype's ever-growing one inch (25mm) button badge collection. The circular artworks are enlarged to seven inch (178mm) and printed on a beautifully textured paper (portrait, 8" x 10" / 203mm x 254mm). The print series already includes over 300 artworks and will further grow to be as rich and versatile as Stereohype's widely-acclaimed button badge collection. The badge collection already features over 1,500 artworks by over 500 established and emerging illustrators, graphic designers, typographers, photographers and artists from around the world. Some of Stereohype's button badge motifs are clearly better suited to be enlarged and featured on a print than others, but many hundreds of designs will make amazing print motifs. More prints are regularly added to this only recently launched Stereohype range. Each print comes with the according button badge. We also have an optional custom frame for Button Badge Motif Prints (as seen in previews). This wooden high quality custom frame is built with a matt, white 'small alpha' frame made by our local London, Clerkenwell framer. Frame is made on demand.
