Like most red-blooded American kids, Matt Weems grew up idolizing 19th century wood cut engraver, Howard Pyle. Oh wait, that was probably just Matt. His early love of old newspaper illustrations and the stark demands of working in black and white evolved over time into his own modern, color-infused point of view.
Matt has created high impact visual solutions for clients from Restoration Hardware to Levi Strauss to Looking Glass Virtual Reality. He works in commercial and editorial illustration out of his studio in Alameda, California. Grounded in strong lines and technical know-how, Matt mixes in color and insight for a style all his own.
If he’s not at his desk, Matt is probably out back building another oil drum gas grill. He kind of can’t stop.
