School Picture / Introduction

Hey everyone, my name is Matt Schuster and I'm an illustrator in the Minneapolis/St.Paul area. Glad to a part of this group of talented artists. I'll do my best to be a part of this community. Nice to meet you.

Also, an illustration of mine was recently included in the second issue of an e-zine put out by t-shirt makers Oddica.com. There are a lot of fantastic artists in both issues. Check it out.

Laundry Islands National Park

From the archives (March 2005):

One of my childhood fascinations was maps. I loved atlases. Road maps. Park maps (like this one). Topographical maps. Maps from National Geographic. Those 3D relief maps at museums. Even now, give me a map and I'll read it like a book. And like any other printed medium, there are well-designed and poorly-designed maps, the good (like the classic London Underground map) and the ugly (like a lot of state highway maps). And I would spend hours of my childhood drawing them.

So last year I tried it again, but with some obvious technological advances. These islands are based on clothes scattered on the bedroom floor. The island at far left is a short-sleeved shirt. The main one is a pair of pants (still recognizable if you look close), underwear and a hoodie. There's a pair of socks off the southern coast. Place names were taken from Manitoba's highway map. I sketched the outline of the clothes and rendered the tabloid-sized map in FreeHand. Topography was then added in Photoshop from a scan of crumpled paper. You can click here for the full backstory.

Where's St. George?

This is a style I don't work in enough-anybody know somebody who has a use for dragon pictures? That's also my bit for the Hundred Posts-Break out the zip disks! Post away, crew!

Time For A Massage!

I did this for the Wall Street Journal over a year ago, but I figured it was time for all the SFG's to enjoy a nice, relaxing back rub!




80s Graffiti

This is based on real street art from my college days. This hand-painted splatterart silhouette would appear on brick walls in vacant lots in in the Gramercy neighborhood. Gave you shivers every time it fooled you. I never had any real love for tagging, but this was something different—subversive, creative...even malevolent. I would swear Alan Moore used it in as a motif in 'Watchmen' (Hiroshima shadows burned into buildings) and I think Roberta Bayley has one painted on her apartment wall as seen in the IFC 'Punk' documentary. Anyhow, I liked it. If all graffiti could b this creative...

Just Say No.....


When I'm not drawing, working at an ad agency, or putting kids to bed, I play drums and make posters for a band specializing in cheesy lounge music. Here's the most recent poster.

CD cover

Hi everybody,
This is a cover (and back) I recently did for a friend´s band. We also made real size printed version of the clown´s mask and he wore it in a couple of gigs. It was fun :)

I was asked to contribute a card design to a magazine yesterday. The deadline: 2 hours!
I whipped this out, a cliche'd idea but thought I'd have some fun with it. By my calculation, there are around a 1000 different combinations. Call me out if you can prove me wrong!

PS: I borrowed the stitches on the jeans from Ms Chickengirl, fellow Sugarfroster!
