StawickiArt's Profile Picture
Matthew Stawicki
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
From superhero comics to the illustrations of Frank Frazetta, Matt has always had an interest in fantasy. Matt was born and raised in the Delaware area. He attended the Pennsylvania School of Art and Design and graduated in 1991. Since beginning his professional career in 1992, he has created many images for a wide range of products and clients including bookcovers, video game covers, collectible card images, collectors plates and fantasy pocket knives to name a few.
Like many illustrators, Matt is influenced by the wonderful work and technological advancements taking place in the illustration field. Although trained as a classical oil painter and doing all his work in oils for the first several years of his career, Matt has moved to doing most of his work in 'digital paint'. He likes to point out however, the computer is not the "push button" solution many perceive it to be. The same craft and attention to design must be present for the artwork to succeed no matter what the medium.
The paintings of noted illustrators like Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth, Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish are among his traditional influences. Also the films of Walt Disney, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are sources of inspired imagery.
In 2001 Matt won the Silver Award for Advertising in Spectrum 8. The first book of his work 'The Art of Matthew Stawicki' was published by Cartouche Press.
Matt's work has also been showcased in 'The Masters of Dragonlance Art' and 'Dragon Art' published by Flame Tree Publishing among others.
Clients include Harper/Collins,Warner Books, Penguin Books, Wizards of the Coast, Daw and Tor Books. Other clients include Milton Bradley, The Franklin Mint, Vivendi Games and The Bradford Exchange.
