Random doodle + news

Posted in Uncategorized on May 14, 2011 by Matt

Haven’t posted in quite a while, so here’s a little doodle I did recently. Also I’ve applied to school in hopes of getting some sort of degree in IT (networking most likely). I’m probably going to start shifting my art focus from Illustration and game design towards more personal works. I find that I have the most fun with art when I’m just drawing or painting random weird stuff. I miss just sitting down and painting without having any sort of goal or subject matter in mind. So I’m going to do more of that good stuff. Art will still be my creative outlet, but I plan on focusing less on it as a career choice, and more as an activity I do for fun. I’d still love to do art for a living, but for now I’m not sure where I want to go with it. I’ll still post art as I do it, but who knows how frequent that will be.

Bog Creatures!!!!! Death from the murky depths!

Posted in Uncategorized on April 1, 2011 by Matt

I recently finished this illustration and am really really pleased with the outcome. I wanted to work on a whole piece rather than just the figure and a bit of background. I also really wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone. I worked with a lighter values and saturation (which isn’t really my style), and thoroughly enjoyed the process as well as the outcome. I think I’m going to gear most of my future stuff around this approach. It will surely help me grow as an artist.

And SHIT…I really gotta kill this habit of outlining things! Old habits die hard I guess…but if I work on it I’m sure I can stray towards greener pastures.

Necromancer and Lizardman

Posted in Uncategorized on March 7, 2011 by Matt

In light of the new mmorpg I’m playing I decided to draw a necromancer (in lich form). He’s all evil and whatnot, which is totally up my ally. And here’s a character design I thought up, some kind of lizard dude.

Hope you enjoy.

Hey hey! Here is my newest illustration, sort of a post-apocalyptic samurai warrior that relies on nuclear power to keep him and his warhorse alive. Check it out!

Here is some recent stuff. There’s a banner I did for my WoW guild (yeah I play wow…what of it?), and a cool Zombie Tribesman character who will eat your brains.

Online Shop (T-Shirts, Stickers, and more)!

Posted in Uncategorized on September 18, 2010 by Matt

Heyo! I’ve finally gotten around to making an online shop. I chose CafePress.com because most people reviewed it as the best place to set up an online shop. With this shop I can add my designs to T-shirts, stickers, hats, hoodies, you name it. Thus far I’ve only added two designs, but plan on adding more asap. There is a ton of awesome products that I can slap my artwork on.

As well as wearable merchandise I am also going to put original artwork up for sale, as well as prints at pretty low prices. I’ve had a lot of requests for prints, but never really got around to doing it, so this should be cool. Here’s a link to the shop: http://www.cafepress.com/IllConceived

The designs I am making for T-shirts aren’t really my typical “style”. I’m going for a much more graphic approach that’s typical for T-shirt designs.  So far I’m pretty happy with what I’ve made. This new approach to art is definitely different and exciting, so expect to see a bunch of other cool designs added to my shop soon.

I hope the prices are reasonable enough so people can afford them. I had to mark up the products more than I’d like so I actually make any sort of profit…it’s ridiculous how much it costs for a company to print and ship one T-shirt. But either way, if you buy any of my stuff thanks a ton! I can definitely use all the support I can get. Maybe one day I can do this art stuff for a living (crossing fingers). Clicky the picture for the shop.
