Illustrator Highlights – Matt Dye

Illustrator Highlights – Matt Dye

by Jennifer Silverwood, March 30, 2018

This week on #IllustratorHighlights, discover the multi-talented Illustrator of multi-mediums, Detroit-based artist Matt Dye! In the last few years, Matt’s illustrations have been used in children’s books and educational software. His art prints and posters have been featured in art galleries, all while he continues pursuing various personal projects and client work. See some of our favorite samples of his amazing portfolio featured below.


“It can be hard to determine when an illustration is finished. Sometimes it’s a matter of pushing it too far and reeling it back until I’m happy with it. Other times, everything just falls into place and it’s more clear when a project feels finished.”

“In the past I’ve self published a few mini-comics that I really enjoyed creating, I even hand screen printed the covers. I’m currently in the process of writing and illustrating my own graphic novel and I’m excited to make that a reality and share it with the world!”

“I think its super important to have an open mind and a positive attitude. Willingness to draw new subjects and different styles than you’re comfortable with will open doors to more work and it can help you find your own voice as an artist. Keep practicing and learning, remember to have fun with it!”
