Matt Peppler’s Awesome Illustrations



Michigan-based artist Matt Peppler’s gorgeous illustrated posters are a celebration of life and every aspect of it. He creates his works freehand using sharpie markers, which he then color edits and works on in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, infusing them with dynamism and energy. Peppler says that his works include lot of pop culture references and his own personal artistic viewpoints.

After graduating high school in the year 2000, Peppler was studying for a business degree before he was drawn to his true calling. Building upon the foundations of his innate talent, he graduated in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the Kendall College of Art of Design. He considers Frank Miller, Andy Warhol and Shephard Fairey to be among his influences.
