Lizardman, aka Matt, is an artist and graphic designer working in the Twin Cities, and co-founder of Rogue Citizen artist collective. He creates unique work in traditional and digital media, and has worked with a diverse clientele in publishing, music, film, performing arts, labor and social justice.
He is agitated and confused by the implications of technology in our lives and in the manipulation of our environment. Much of his personal work is the product of paranoid imagery suggested by science fiction and the news, and too much coffee.
