I've moved my gallery to my professional studio site here in Deviant Art.
I figure sending clients to my studio named site is much more professional than using my call-sign I came with back in 1999.
Yes, I'm still good ol' Crack Matrix, just taking a more mature and professional step to manage my work.
I will probably Trim the gallery here to the fan art and early work. Thanks for all your support and views through the years and stop on by and +watch over at Fire Forge ;)

Thanks Grimlock, but I have my hands too full right now. I wish I had the time to focus on comic like I did in the passed, but right now it's not in the cards. :(

You colored a Starscream that Andrew Froedge did for the Transformers Genesis Art book. He lost the hard drive with the original on it. You wouldnt happen to have it to post would you?
crackmatrix Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010
post it?...No. I removed my Transformers from the Genesis book awhile back. I know Andy. I will contact him if he needs any of his work.
