My name is Matthew Ryan and I am an Illustrator that
lives to create exciting characters and worlds for others to enjoy. Having
graduated in 2009 with a BA Hons in Illustration from the University for the
Creative Arts in Maidstone, I was keen to develop a career as an Illustrator.
My intention was to specifically focus on the area of comic books and concept
design, however I feel I should not just limit myself to these two areas and
instead have looked at all types of visual narrative work.
I love to work alongside people who are passionate about
their projects, giving me a huge boost and inspiring me to create exciting,
dynamic artwork that compliments their vision. I put a strong emphasis on
research before I start any work, allowing me to better explore the brief as
well as developing a more diverse selection of designs. My strengths lie in my
idea generation, allowing me to come up with a variety of designs in order to
explore the client’s brief thoroughly. I would like to think that this includes
exciting and creative solutions that stand out thanks to my unique style of
Past work has included comic book pages, card design,
board games, book illustrations, environments, and concept art. These have been
throughout various genres such as science fiction, fantasy, superheroes,
military, western and many more. Within this site you will find a selection of
work from these commissions; I’ve included a diverse selection to give you a
better idea of everything I am capable of.
You can email me at email@example.com for any
job opportunities or if you have any further questions to ask me. I will get
back to you as soon as I can.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Matthew (MattR Illustration).
