With 20 years of experience in the book publishing and editorial illustration markets and growing experience in young adult publishing, my approach combines unique and memorable concepts with sophisticated, humorous drawing. My work has been described as darkly whimsical, refined, and clever.

“Matt Stevens is not only an exceptional illustrator who delivers quality work on time but is able to fully grasp the needs of the project from day one. He successfully created a series of holiday cover illustrations for The Science Fiction Book Club. His work is precise and working with him was one of the easiest and most pleasing commissions of my career.”

“Matt Stevens cranks out fantastic work in print and online, on time and done right. 

I had the pleasure and the privilege of working with him on my book “Baby Barbells”

which required over 50 full color illustrations on a tight deadline from Running Press.

 Matt came through with “flying colors.”  He is a top tier illustrator and a genuinely

good guy.”
