Hi! My name is Matt Walker and I’m a professional illustrator based in Wakefield… but if you’re here you probably already knew that, maybe not the ‘Wakefield’ part though… sorry, I’m rambling.

I make illustrations for children’s books, posters, editorials and marketing. I also produce concept art for animation and videogames.

When I’m not working you can typically find me playing and watching American football, rock climbing, hiking, or reading a good book (and occasionally a bad one too).

My process starts with small thumbnails which are then mocked up digitally in photoshop. These digital mock-ups are then worked in with traditional painting and textures.

Feel free to get in touch for commissions and collaborations! I’m excited to work with you already!
