About ShaHuskies illustration

Hello and welcome to my Patreon! My name is Matt and I'm a watercolor artist who thrives on texture, detail, and traversing new artistic styles. I enjoy painting animals, landscapes and fan art. Outside of watercolors I enjoy a myriad of creative ventures; acrylic painting, drawing, video editing, sculpture, and music.

But my biggest passion in the arts is, and always has been, story. 

I've always enjoyed absorbing other's stories and creating my own. As a kid I would constantly be stapling copier paper together to draw out a story in crayons or film a movie starring my action figures and stuffed animals with my parents' camcorder. That passion has stayed with me into adulthood. There's always characters and ideas floating around in my head, with hours spent in thought attempting to piece them all together like a complex mental jigsaw puzzle.

One of these stories I've been marinating on for close to a decade. Telling it as a graphic novel eventually seemed like it would be the best fit. I decided that illustrating it in watercolors would best capture the tone of this particular story, and much of my exploration of this beautiful, versatile medium has been a search for the style that would best capture this story that I've become so passionate about.

While that project is simmering on the back burner, I'm currently working on another graphic novel to become more fluent with the medium. It's about a young witch named Griselle who leaves her magical realm behind in order to move to suburban American and follow her dreams of opening her own bakery. I have the overall story plotted out, storyboard is underway, and I've begun watercoloring the final pages!

I will be sharing the creative process for these works with my patrons on a more in depth level. You'll see a behind the scenes look at my watercolor work, and exclusive content such as concept art, storyboards, and commentary on the character development and plot aspects of the stories as I develop them.
