Mathew Reynolds (batfish73) is a gifted man with many talents. I was introduced to his supreme music making ability initially. We met digging for vinyl at Sundance, and as he gave me a ride home he threw a cassette of his beats in the deck. I thought I was listening to Public Enemy remix instrumentals, and I was expecting him to hit fast forward… slowly, I began to realize that the massive sounds coming from that system were originals by The Ill Mathematical… naturally, he became the original beatsmith (along with Adlib Hopkins). His musical talent is widely known in the area.
People, however, may not be familiar with his natural talent at illustration. The man may as well be a photographer, he can capture the essence of a moment so well. Whether it be his famous collection of Indian Jones illustrations, his touching a heartfelt Vietnam veteran portrait work, or his upcoming opus Vic Falcon, all of his work is worth multiple and intense looks.
