Description Edit | History

Hello. My name is Matt Dixon. I'm a freelance illustrator and concept artist from the UK.

I was born in Birmingham in 1972. I've been an enthusiastic waver of pens and pencils for as long as I can remember. All my work is now created digitally, a process which I find significantly faster and more efficient than traditional methods. Having my work space free of pencil shavings and spilled paint is a pleasant bonus too. Digital art first captured my imagination when I began to assemble images from ASCII characters on a Commodore VIC-20 way back in 1980. Happily, things have moved along a little and Adobe Photoshop allows me to achieve slightly more sophistacted results than I got back then.


My long association with the games industry began when I first contributed art to a video game in 1988. I'm very proud to have worked on titles for almost every major gaming platform since then. I was employed by one of the UK's largest independent games developers for more than a decade, initially as a production artist, then as an art lead. During this time I was privileged to be involved with numerous high profile game and movie licenses, including Harry Potter, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon and Pirates of the Caribbean.

I now work freelance providing illustration and concept design for print and digital media. Recent clients include Electronic Arts, Hodder Children's Books, Sony Online Entertainment, Macmillan, Future Publishing and Blizzard Entertainment.

I'm the author of 'The Fantasy Artist's Figure Drawing Bible', an instructional book aimed at budding character designers.

My favourite colour is green.
