Hi! I'm Matt Busch, an Artist who works on Hollywood properties like STAR WARS and LORD OF THE RINGS. I'm also the Writer and Director of the upcoming ALADDIN 3477 movie. Ask Me Anything!
For over 2 decades, I've been one of the top artists working on licensed properties like STAR WARS, LORD OF THE RINGS, and INDIANA JONES, creating art for posters, books, comics, games, and more. I've also worked with music acts like FOO FIGHTERS, BEASTIE BOYS, and POISON, creating art for promotional items or concert merchandise.
5 art books have been published of my work, including the recent HOLLYWOOD IS DEAD collection, the first that I successfully funded on Kickstarter and published myself. By day, I'm a professor and faculty advisor of Creative Imaging and Illustration in the Media and Communication Arts dpeartment at Macomb College.
I also have a background working in concept art and storyboarding for film and television. This path of working on larger studio pictures has led me to writing and directing my own independent features, including the upcoming ALADDIN 3477 movie. I've also had some great Online viral success with the YOU CAN DRAW STAR WARS videos (based on the best-selling book of the same name) produced for StarWars.com and Youtube.
We can chat art, breaking into the biz, STAR WARS, making movies... Anything goes! No such thing as a dumb question, so ask me anything!
