Matthew studied Illustration & graphic design at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After working as a in-house designer & Illustrator in Milwaukee and Minneapolis for about 13 years, Matthew decided to become a freelance illustrator and do it full time. His work reflects his obsession with retro illustration from the past. He tries to weave a contemporary perspective with a 50’s b-movie poster flair. Matthew creates all his illustration in Adobe Photoshop. I still am traditional in that the concept is still based on an original sketch. I scan the sketch and work over it as my base layer.
