Matthew Chapman is a fourth year drawing and painting student at OCAD U.

Among Matthew’s creations is a murder mystery game inspired by the popular board game Clue.

“The Black Manor is a plan for an ultimate dollhouse murder mystery game. It’s based on the board game Clue, which I've been an immense fan of since childhood. This game, as you can see, is intended to have a multi-roomed mansion.”

There was a deleted chapter from Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that was first published last year and Matthew has illustrated a scene.

“There were extra children in the deleted chapter, including Miranda Mary Piker, a bratty teacher’s pet with a school head-master as a father. I decided to illustrate in pen and Photoshop the cut chapter detailing Miranda and her father falling into the Spotty Powder Mixer; a machine that grinds powder to make children sick to evade exams. The Oompa Loompas' sing: 

 

Oh Miranda Mary Piker,

who could ever, ever like her,

such a nasty, disobedient kid. 

So we said, we shall fix her, 

inside the Spotty Powder Mixer

and we'll like her even more than we did.

Matthew doesn’t just focus on ink drawings – check out the incredible detail in this Titanic image.

“This is an accurate cross section is of the RMS Titanic back when I did a theme exhibition on the ship in 2012. Made this entirely on SnagIt 8.0.”
