My Bio
I am a traditional artist and illustrator. I live in the beautiful city of Prague, Czech Republic, with my wife and two children.
I work mainly as a freelance graphic and web designer (making websites, posters and print publications), but I am also a self-taught traditional artist, I take commissions and sell my pictures online in my Etsy shop.
As an artist, I focus on landscapes, architecture and fantasy illustrations. My great love and inspiration is the world of J. R. R. Tolkien (see Tolkien folder) and I've created many illustrations based on his books. But I am also inspired by other fantasy worlds as well as real-life landscapes and architecture. My speciality is decorative border designs, taking inspiration from various historical art styles. I have often used my traditional art in my graphic design projects, too.

I have a personal website www.matejcadil.cz and a site called Angrenost about the world of J. R. R. Tolkien (in Czech) with my illustrations.
