Matt Dixon – Transmissions 2 Kickstarter
My favourite artist at the moment, apart from my Big Sis (Anarkitty) of course, is a rather talented and genuinely nice chap called Matt Dixon.
Matt has been painting and illustrating for many years now and has clients that include Blizzard, Electronic Arts and Wizards of the Coast, but if his name sounds familiar, or even his face ( replete with long flowing mane) then it is probably because you have seen him at… well… every con in the country.
Mr Dixon is a prolific Convention exhibiter and a regular face on the con scene, (something my wallet will not thank him for) and you will have no doubt walked past, or admired, his booth (easy now) and wears at some point in time; his forte being curvy, fantasy Pinups or, as is the case of this article, pretty damn cute Robots.
Having had great success with his first art book Transmissions, Matt has being busily working away at more designs and is now looking to release a second book, Transmissions 2, via Kickstarter
“My first collection of robot art, Transmissions, was published in 2013 and has been a popular item on my comic convention table ever since. I’ve painted lots more robots since then, and it’s now time to publish a new volume, Transmissions 2. Transmissions 2 will be the same format as the first book. A4 in size with 32 full colour pages and perfect bound with a laminated soft cover. Like Transmissions, it will include a mixture of individual paintings and sequential art.
The project was funded in less than 48 hours, which was amazing. I’m so pleased I chose to use Kickstarter to fund Transmissions 2 as it’s really brought me closer to the people who enjoy the art. It’s been great to get so much support and feedback. It really feels like a team effort and I’m really excited to see how things progress. We’re now working towards our first stretch goal which will add extra pages to the book. It would be wonderful to hit that goal so that all the backers get a bigger book, and I get to spend more time painting robots!”
As you can see, it has already smashed its initial target and is looking to move onto some great stretch goals. So why not get with the Programming and make a pledge to own this absolutely stunning book.
