Overview

I’m an illustrator with a background in fantasy art. I’ve spent years in the video game industry, and have created art for everything from AAA video games, to trading cards, to magazine covers, film key art and book covers. I do a lot of concept art, so I'm great at helping a writer realize the look of their character.

I work digitally, and think it is a great medium for quick iteration. For me, its the easiest way to make changes and let the authors ideas become fully realized. I also work much quicker digitally, which makes my turn around time fairly fast. I love creating cover art and trying to express the mood of a piece of writing.

I create a lot of production art. Often time its designed to pitch to investors before a game is developed. Other times, its used as key art for advertising. I love the idea of helping someone realize they're ideas in one story filled image!

Matt was fantastic and had an instinctually creative eye. He also self-edits, meaning that if he thinks he has a better idea than he previously developed he'll go for it and show you options. I hope to do repeat business with Matt.

Matt Hubel is a consummate professional and incredible creative talent who took my brief description of what I wanted for the book cover of my fantasy/horror novel and gave me back a dynamic piece of artwork which surpassed all of my expectations. He is simply the best!

He carefully listened to my input and skillfully implemented every suggestion I made. He was very open about the process and was easy to talk to the entire way through. I highly reco...
