Hi there! My name is Matt Laskowski. For years, I've made animation inspired illustrations related to a personal graphic novel project I've been developing called SYNTHESIS; a near-future sci-fi story centering around the unlikely reunion of an estranged family over a highly anticipated experimental product launch that transforms an entire city in ways the world has never seen.



Synthesis has been in low-key development for a couple years now, refining the story premise, characters, plot direction, etc until I'm comfortable with it enough to begin work on visual aspects. I'm just now starting visual development and instead of posting all this work to a private blog for myself like I was planning, I decided to do that here instead so people can see if they want!
I hope you'll join me on this journey and eventually see the finished project some day!

Aside from Synthesis, I'm also a trained professional illustrator, with deep knowledge of everything from perspective, color, and light, to composition, concept, and story! I often have to critique and evaluate work at my job, so if you become a patron, I could even do the same for you! If you'd like professional-level feedback on your own artwork on what to consider on improving for your next piece, how to improve or approach next-steps for a piece you're currently working on, or just share thoughts and commentary, consider the higher support tiers where I'll be more than happy to help!
Tiers
Oh NICE
$1 or more per creation
Pledging anything is caring! It means a lot to me that you have interest in this project to leave a tip in the jar. It helps me and in turn you'll receive:
  • Access to select art posts! (Production illustrations, wallpapers, etc)
  • Detailed updates about progress towards project launch
Oh MAN
$2 or more per creation
Want to see more of what's going on with Synthesis? At this tier you get...
  • Access to the development art for SYNTHESIS that I'll be posting as I go through it. This includes stuff like concept art, character studies, world building, etc.
  • Community access for discussions and Q&A!
    • Hey let's play some Overwatch sometime!
oh DUDE
$5 or more per creation
You must like what I’m trying to do here! At this level, including the development art, you’ll also get...
  • (Spoiler-ish-free) posts about story development, past and present iterations, research & development.
  • Occasional tips and tricks (tutorials) posted about digital art, the art of illustration, techniques, workflows, etc – whatever I find relevant to share as I go along.
  • In the event when SYNTHESIS starts production, advanced looks at thumbnail/sketch pages, early looks at final pages.
Oh HO
$15 or more per creation
Oh. Are you looking for more? Hmmm... well, aside from the previous tiers... how about:
  • Monthly critique/feedback on your artwork!
    • Working on something you want trained eyes on? Send me what you got, such as an illustration, character design, environment concepts, and I’ll give you detailed feedback on it! Come back next month and show me your progress or something else you've done between!
    • This tier is limited because of the individualized support I’m offering.
Oh YES
$35 or more per creation
You’re serious! Let’s RAMP IT UP!
  • Weekly Critique/Feedback on your artwork!
    • Get feedback from me more often! I can help you produce artworks over multiple rounds of feedback and personally help you grow as artist. Whether it’s the same artwork until it’s finished, or a new artwork every week, or you want an assignment from me to get feedback on, it’s all good!
    • This tier is limited because of its frequency and the individualized support I’m offering.
