Ohio-based artist Matthew Houston aka “Doctor Butters” is an young illustrator working in a truly old-school way. He designs characters and worlds in a style he’s honed after years of studying drawing, which he took up after sacking in his job a few years back.
He’s embraced a fundamental branch of illustration in character design, and has strayed away from trendier styles in his quest to become an illustrator. The creatures and people he creates are a bunch of people seemingly inspired by video games, sci-fi, comic books and anything to do with castles, folklore and legend.
