GRAPHIC DESIGN

Matt is a true master at all forms of graphic design. He started back in 1997 working with top club promoters in the Albany, NY area on all of their promotional flyers, posters, newspaper ads, magazine ads, and billboards. He has created artwork for all the hottest musicians at the time including DMX, FunkMaster Flex, G-Unit, Mariah Carey, and Lil Wayne. After landing his first job with the top job fair company in the country he honed his skills as their art director designing all of their print media and creating their entire online presence in the early ages of web advertising.

Working for many companies in a wide variety of industries, Matt has become an expert at every form of print design and production. In 2008 he started his own paintball company where he transfered all those skills to apparel design and production creating his own clothing line geared toward the exciting world of paintball. He has produced many custom jerseys and shirts which are still hailed as the best in the industry.

ILLUSTRATION
This form of art is Matt's favorite and the one he has been doing the longest. Illustration is what got him involved with all the digital media arts and aids in his keen sense of design and eye for aesthetics and layout. At a very young age Matt discovered that he had a true passion and knack for drawing a.k.a. doodling as he refers to it.

Pencils, pen & ink, markers, charcoal, tattoo, and digital illustration are all in the repertoire of this truly gifted artist that considers everything a canvas.
