Hello everyone, my name is Matt Andrews, a 27-year old illustrator living in South Carolina, and the lesser known artist behind Magic Girl , Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland , and most lately, Houdini . This thread will be a place for me to share the artwork I did for Magic Girl now that the cabinets are finally being delivered. Many of you have probably heard of ZombieYeti, who did the backglass and playfield art, but I also did a huge amount of art for the game that is used on the outside of the cabinet and for the digital displays. To start, I've attached the first painting I did for John after he asked me to work on the project in 2012, and I'll be rolling out more pieces in the days and weeks to come.

Constructive comments and questions are very welcomed. Enjoy.

Looks great. Welcome to the fold and glad you're not in the shadows any longer. I think you'll find a great deal of people here that admire the work you contributed to MG.

Were you promised a machine too?

Welcome! Loved the art on BHZA. Contacted you a year and a half ago about buying a print of this:

Are you still working on RAZA?

#7 1 year ago

Love the artwork... Looking forward to your updates.

#8 1 year ago

Love the work! Hopefully more of your work makes it into pinball machines that ship

Also, Kman was right, worth trying to get permission to sell some prints

#9 1 year ago

The art is incredible! Both you and Zombie's work is incredibly good. I didn't quite understand why a single artist didn't do the art for both the playfield and the cabinet though?

Thanks for the lengthy introduction on a recent unmentionable podcast. It was interesting to hear about your origin story and how you met John and worked with him.

I don't know if it's worth your or Zombie's time/effort, but I bet some slick looking pinball t-shirts with great art would sell out...

Quoted from dmbjunky:

No, I was never promised a machine. I was introduced to the pinball industry by JPOP, and didn't know what to expect. I just treated it as a normal freelance project, which at the time, I had only a handful under my belt. I didn't have the space to store a pinball machine anyway, so I would have declined if I was being paid with a cabinet.

I'll let you guys know as soon as I have the go-ahead to sell prints. I'll probably be putting them up on Redbubble so lots of different memorabilia is possible from posters to phone cases.

Good move.

Ben's not messing around.

Brace for another JPop rant about those other companies stealing his ideas because of their egos.

Quoted from TaylorVA:

Haha, I can only hope for the sake of all who purchased the game that I'm done with RAZA. I don't know the status of their assembly, but I'd like to make a future post for the art I did for that machine as well.

#16 1 year ago

mandraws you seriously need to take Ben up.

#17 1 year ago

Well first of all, Ben, I'd like to say I'm a huge fan of your portable game consoles, and I've watched almost every episode of TBHS. Send me an email or DM, and I'd love to talk about it.

#19 1 year ago

From Ben Heck's Zombie Adventureland to Ben Heck's Bible Adventures.

Sounds good.

#20 1 year ago

My next game isn't Bible Adventures. Pretty far from it, actually

#22 1 year ago

Very cool

Hope you land a great gig in pinball and out of weed whacking.

Ben is the biggest tease in pinball

Looking forward to seeing the project you and Spooky come up with, keep being awesome.

Hmmm... the Necronomicon is pretty far from the Bible. OMG PLEASE be Evil Dead. Actually, please don't, I can't swing another game for a while

#25 1 year ago

Sorry to derail, who needs resumes when you have message boards. Looking forward to a potential future collaboration with Spooky!

#26 1 year ago

Do you sell original art? Can I commission something from you?

#27 1 year ago

You don't REALLY need to get permission from jpoop before you sell anything, do you??

#28 1 year ago

Thanks for being on the podcast. It was quite an interesting story. I think if you worked on anything with Ben (which means Spooky) it would be a great chance to continue making great pinball art.

#29 1 year ago

mandraws you should definitely look into coming to the southern fried gameroom expo in Atlanta this year it would be a great opportunity to show/sell some prints and meet the community

Amazing art and now a new possible gig in the industry?!?!

This thread is already positively awesome!

THIS is what pinside should be about. Rock on bro!

#32 1 year ago

Hope you can be a contributor to the hobby on a long term basis! Your art rocks!

#33 1 year ago

I know the Magic Girl and Houdini projects have been train wrecks, but I have to say that when I first saw them I wanted them.. based entirely on the awesome artwork. Nice work! Love to see original hand drawn art coming back to pinball.

Quoted from spfxted:

The downside to more work in pinball is less time for private commissions. Concerning the prints, none of the IPs are mine, so I'm assuming selling prints would get me in trouble, but I'm still waiting on confirmation there.

That would be awesome. Atlanta is not too far away from me, so I'll check it out.

Welcome to the pinball community ! Like Zombie Yeti you guys are at least something positive to come out of Jpop.

Please sell your prints too ! Jeremy did and they sold out like hotcakes.

Not a lawyer... but if this was work for hire and you were never paid anything tangible I'd guess you actually own the artwork. Basically due to breach of contact (no payment on their part) you need not follow through your your commitment.

SHIT, man!! I'm only going to say this once, Matt. Guys like you really piss me off. Because you have this kind of talent and I don't.

That picture for BHZA is what the game should have been. Love it.

Bryan, you've got talent...

Once they clone these things, they're going to need somebody who remembers how to tame them.

#47 1 year ago

Your artwork is fantastic, Matt...you've got the total package - you're a great character designer, your compositions are tight, perspective is great, poses are exciting, color, lighting and attention to detail are excellent...and you're only 27!?!? Looking forward to seeing your career unfold, in pinball or otherwise.

#48 1 year ago

awesome art!!!!

Matt -

Great interview on the K Podcast... really enjoyed listening to it. You're one talented dude. Congrats on blowing-up the pinball world with your contributions to Magic Girl and Houdini. Spectacular work!
