Matěj Čadil
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Czech Republic
I am a traditional artist, focusing on landscapes, architecture and fantasy illustrations. I am especially inspired by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien (see Tolkien folder) and I've created many illustrations based on them, but I often paint real-life landscapes and architecture as well. 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.

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.

You may also find me on:

🔸 Instagram
🔸 LinkedIn.

During the last year, we and a couple of friends talked about the possibility of making a calendar with Tolkien illustrations. We made some pictures for it (I was very late as usual) but it looked lake all the work of putting it together and printing it wouldn't be possible to make in time for the year 2019. However at last this effort was successful and at last the calendar was made – a bit late but still ready to be sold at the annual Tolkiencon in Prague which took place on 11-13 January 2019.

To see all of it, you can look at a short video of paging through the whole calendar: www.instagram.com/p/Bsu2ojeHCR… (by the way, you can follow me on Instagram too, I put there a lot of things that are not here)




Art Summary 2018
Another year has gone by, so it is time for another summary. They are not precisely one for each month, but roughly they correspond to them. I had to leave out some nice pictures, this year was artistically quite fruitful (despite the fact that it was fruitful in another sense as well). But more or less these are the ones that I see as the best of 2018 (I conveniently included two of #inktober2018 drawings, because I finished the last one only in November)

Pictures included in this summary:

Nice present, but...
"...how am I supposed to put it on?"

As you see, being a (male) deer centaur brings certain difficulties. ;-)

A simple drawing made for a monthly challenge "deer sweather" in October 2018, based on this funny idea. I thought it was premature to publish such a Christmas-themed picture at that time, and then I almost forgot about it. =D

That you exist, create, live, and ponder works of such beauty are all superb and telling reasons to rejoice.  That you have the courage to risk thoughtless, cruel and even vicious remarks in return are reasons to respect you. That you use your own priceless perspective to produce marvels uniquely yours is a reason to regard you with gratitude and awe.  That you have mastered the requisite techniques of art and technology to transmit the results of your thought and patient labor are causes and solid grounds for praise. Taken all together, they combine into a sound and complete justification for an earnest, merry, and utterly sincere tendering of the best of all wishes for you to have THE HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS!
