Matt is a contemporary artist and cartoonist whose ongoing graphic narrative Dark Pants follows a mysterious pair of pants through Los Angeles as they impact the lives of whomever wears them. MacFarland has also compiled his 14+ years of teaching experience into a self-published comic The Teaching Chronicles Volume 1 and 2. He enjoys introducing students to a wide spectrum of art materials and approaches but also has a fundamental conviction that everyone can draw!
