Fanboy30’s Profile

So, Tell us a little about yourself.

Hi my name is Matt and I’m a 37 year old Englishman now living in Canada. A photography graduate, illustrator, toy collector and full time geek. Please note that this design is a collaboration with the wonderfully talented artist, illustrator and part-time Jedi, Karen Hallion.

If you were a sea creature, what would you be and why?

Probably something large like a whale so I didn’t have to worry about other animals eating me.

Who was your favorite comic book character as a kid?

I was totally obsessed with Tygra from Thundercats. I loved that he could become invisible and had a cool whip. Plus he looked good in spandex... wait I think this may explain a few things.

Right now I’m obsessed with……

Collecting superhero action figures, I may need to move to a larger place to display them all.

Really terrible movie that is your secret guilty pleasure?

‘Event Horizon’ because where we are going you don’t need eyes to see.

What song would best describe your art?

‘Carry On Wayward Son’ by Kansas

What's the strangest thing you've drawn?

A dinosaur holding its own butt.

What was your first job?  Have you always wanted to be an artist?

An usher at a movie theatre but I have always enjoyed drawing and did study art at school.

What was your "break through" moment you knew you made it as a designer/illustrator?

When the actor Jim Beaver who plays Bobby Singer on the TV show Supernatural contacted me and ordered a couple of my designs to wear at Comic Cons.

You and one other person on a deserted island, who is it?

Probably someone who is good at survival because I totally suck at it.

Wars or Trek?

Wars because its the same age as me.

What super power would you have? Would you tell people or keep it to yourself?

I would love to have physic abilities and no I wouldn’t tell people because I would get experimented on.

If you were not an artist, what would you be?

I would love to be an actor. I’m very good at pretending to be anything but myself, because its more interesting.
