About

Matt Walker is a professional illustrator based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

He specialises in visual development, character design, and background art for a variety of fields including animation, videogames and children’s books. He also teaches art workshops which are specially tailored for age and ability. Most recently Matt has had the privilege to be involved in leading character design workshops for the Reading Pictures: Seeing Stories Festival.

When he’s not drawing you can typically find him playing and watching American football, rock climbing, hiking, or reading a good book (and occasionally a bad one too).

Matt’s 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.

Matt is currently open for commissions. Feel free to get in touch!
