How did it happen?

Paper Steps is a project, and personal passion, of Artist & Animator Dave Mattock.

Hi! I have enjoyed running my own small animation company for over 10 years providing designs and creations for a variety of businesses. Now I'm looking to do something more personal, more fun and more dedicated to the passion I now have as a father to my two boys.

After 15 years away from my home county of Devon, and having spent some time living in London, it certainly feels right to return home and enjoy a lifestyle more suited to my growing family. Over the last few years, I have felt a strong desire to get more creative with my work and take it in new directions. I want to work in an environment free of creative boundaries, client briefs and company guidelines - it was from this that the idea of Paper Steps was created!

My fantastic wife and two children have inspired me to create new and exciting designs which I am making specifically for little ones (and possibly adults too!). I want my work to inspire and encourage creativity during playtime. Through Paper Steps, I plan to continually make exciting and colourful art that I could see other families, similar to my own, getting enjoyment out of. It feels great to work on art that I feel so passionate about and I hope that you will see this in my work.

My main aim with Paper Steps is to bring fun and fresh designs to the table. I don't want to pump out tired old designs, stock images, and stills of the same old pop culture characters. I aim to bring a quirkier edge to my designs, using my skills as a 3D artist to produce original illustrations and unique characters. My collection may start small, but it will continue to grow as I produce more and more creations.

My designs can also be personalised by adding your own touch to the work. You can add whatever name you like to make it more special and specific for your child. Each design will be hand-prepared and checked with you before purchase to ensure the very best fit. I want each personalised piece to be bespoke and to be tailored to your exact needs.

I hope you enjoy discovering my latest designs and know that each one is made to not only look its very best, but to make you smile! Thank you for reading my story, I hope you and your family enjoy my art!
