Ever since he was able to hold a crayon, Matthew Hennen ate crayons, but then he turned 4 and realized drawing with them was much more enjoyable. The rest is history.

While studying art and design at the University of Wisconsin--Stout, Matthew found a job in his hometown of Shakopee doing caricatures at Valleyfair. It was at this place, under the tutelage of owner and future Mad Magazine artist Tom Richmond and many other amazing artists, that Matt would discover his true path of art. Although he doesn't use crayons so much these days, Hennen still adheres to the roots of his childhood and that vision which initially inspired him.

Since graduating, it has been of crucial importance for Matt to continue improving by enrolling in private art schools, ateliers, and institutes, as well as keeping a "close knit" group of friends and inspiration to "draw" upon (double puns not intended). With a growing depth of art, a solid foundation of skills, a vast range of ability, and coast to coast exposure, Matt is truly thankful to be known as an artist and to share his art here with you.

If you like these examples and would like to commission him for a personal portrait, caricature, illustration, live event, or if you just want to see more of his art, you may do so at matthewhennen.blogspot.com.
