Banjo Kazooie!! What kind of video gamer now days doesn't know who these two popular characters are? 

Character Doodles

Haven't had a lot of time to draw for myself this past month due to getting married and all that, but I was able to sit down and just have some fun drawing with pencil and paper.
I was fiddling around with a wacky robot character. I really like his pincher hands.

And Murray again. He's got a fun shape to him.

Murray and Clive

Here is the new comedy team that I have created recently. Presenting to you for the first time ever: Murray Monster and Clive Creature! 
Murray Monster is the  level headed straight-man of this comedy team. Luckily for Clive, Murray is smart enough to fix the situations that they get into.

Clive Creature is the eccentric and playful  partner to Murray. Clive is a few degrees short of normal, but he believes that his good ideas are enough to stay out of trouble.

Gator character

Had a few spare minutes to draw a cartoony alligator. I like the colors I used for this guy. I think I'll draw him some more. Maybe he will take the spot of my previous alligator character (Ajax) I was using for my golfing story.

Simpsons Irony at the Simpsons Ride

Rachael and I went to Universal Studios yesterday and went on the Simpsons Ride. Now, I am a HUGE Simpsons fan, so when we went into the gift shop I had to see....were they going to be sold out of Bort licence plates?
Yes they were....

Hey Wordy!

My first week as a storyboard artist at Cosmic Toast was a trying one. Right from the start I was pushed to start working on the pilot episode of a new kids show (hopefully coming to PBS) Hey Wordy. From Monday to Friday, I was drawing like a madman in order to get this 22 page script all boarded and ready to be pitched to some execs within the following week.

Here is a little preview of the show...

Matt's Big Art Update!

In the words of Prof. Farnsworth, GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!!
After months of portfolio work, I am finally a storyboard intern at Cosmic Toast Animation. If I do well, there is a good chance that I will be a full time employee by May. Thank the Lord!
Next: I have been doing some freelance concept and character for a writer and his Vampire novel. This is outside my comfort zone of drawing funny cartoon characters, but hey, money is money, and he really likes what I have created for him.

And of course, I have had time to finally start my long awaited, popular demanded Snordo the Dragon comic! Stay tuned to SNORDO.com for updates on my personal project.
