"I struggled coming up with solid images for a while and finally figured it out when I realized that the music I was trying to paint about will always be cooler and better than one of my paintings. So I stopped trying to make a painting about Bowie's Starman or Iggy's Raw Power -- and I kinda brushed aside the questionable hours spent listening to Steve Miller's Greatest Hits album on repeat (I got busted accidentally singing along while running on the treadmill at the gym. WOO HOO!)

So I stopped listening to music and sought out the nerdiest podcasts I could find. One was about vintage Star Wars figures and one called The Mego Museum (It's about the awesome Barbie doll sized super hero dolls we played with in the 70's and early eighties.) Those became my friends and inspiration for two months as I was reminded how much fun playing and just being a kid was. Those happy memories brought me to success as I believe this to be on of my best finished paintings to date. I still listen to those podcasts today as they are rather enjoyable.

Michigan Artist Matt Gordon Hits The Sweet Spot

Matt Gordon is a mixed media artist working out of Northville, Michigan. He attended both the College of Art & Design in Columbus, Ohio and Center of Creative Studies (CCS) in Detroit. He strives to make well crafted and highly detailed acrylic paintings and pencil drawings, along with the occasional 3-D fabrication thrown in there to satisfy sculptural needs and to provide live models for things that don't really exist but need to look like they do. The paintings and drawings have been parts or scenes of an ongoing story line that he has been working on since 1998 with the ultimate goal of having them made into a big and wonderful illustrated storybook.
