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.

Work experience

Freelance Artist

Self-employed
January, 2019 – Present (almost 4 years)

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 remarkable! Extremely patient and helpful. We weren't huge artists ourselves and were unsure of our composition, but he delivered and helped us get the kind of product we wanted!

I absolutely loved working with Matt. He made the process incredibly easy and communicated promptly throughout the process. He is a true professional--a supremely talented artist yes, but even more than that, he was open to my ideas, considerate of my project's requirements and limitations, and was always upbeat and easy to chat with. The project was an investment for me, and I can't thank Mat...
