Summary

Born in 1978 in Toowoomba, Queensland, Matt is a Freelance Comic Book Inker and Colourist now based in Perth, Australia. After High School, Matt studied for a Bachelor’s Degree in Illustration and Graphic Design from James Cook University (QLD, Australia) from 1997-1999.

Matt draws influence from a wide variety of artists and art forms. His love of comic art started with Marvel and Image Comics in the late 1980’s. He also draws a lot of inspiration from fantasy artists, along with the imagery from classic horror movie posters.

Matt has been working primarily in the medium of comic art since 2014 with the founding of Snakebit Art Studio, and has many printing credits to his name.
