Illustrator Research 17: Matt Rota
Matt Rota graduated from the Maryland Institute of Art in 2003 and then went on to graduate with an MFA at the School of Visual Arts. His clients have been La Weekly, Russian Esquire, Science News, New York Times, etc. Rota's work impresses me because of his unique ink line rendering as well as his ability to stage dramatic compositions. Some of the colors and methods of rendering he employs sometimes are uncannily creepy at times. Rota also taught at the Maryland Institute of art for a short period, but lives and works in New York. His work is here.
