I'm happy to unveil the all-new MattBusch.com! Below is a list of updated sections, including some brand new areas! Of course, you can always just explore it for yourself by clicking the banner below and heading there right now!
This is the main section for news, chit, and chatter. One of the biggest changest you'll see is that the main page is much more user-friendly, and the headline news is right there, rather than having to fish for it. As well, you'll notice ARTIST, WRITER, and FILMMAKER buttons at the top. This customizes the headline news for you, in case you only want to see news in a specific area.
This section is about yours truly, as a professional, or lack thereof. The BIOGRAPHY has been updated with new info and pictures. The CREDITS section has also been updated. One of the brand new features on the site is on the ABOUT MATT page. Recently I was interviewed by Brandt Keller. We had a great time and a really interesting conversation.
This section is dedicated to aspiring artists, or folks interesting in seeing how I work. In addition to the Darth Maul tutorial on the STEP BY STEP page, you'll also see related news on where you can find cool drawing and painting tips around the web.
One of the biggest additions to the site is the all-new STUDIO TOUR, which takes you inside my home and Planetmatt headquarters. This is a really neat look at how I work... And play. You see the serious stuff like my office, art studio, gallery, recording studio, and product warehouses. You'll also see how I relax in my bar, mini-movie theater, and classic video game arcade.
Here you'll find all my updated Online galleries, complete with all-new un-cropped an re-sized thumbnails. Nearly 100 new pieces have been added to the SKETCHES, GALLERY, and STAR WARS sections! The new stuff is on the top page, but each also has new re-archived pages, for those who like to dig deep.
This section is geared towards several of my creator-owned properties, like CONJURE, ALIZARIN'S JOURNAL, and DARIA JONTAK. The CRISIS page also has a link to the first couple pages of the illustrated screenplay. You can read through, check out the storyboards, and if you like what you see, you can get the book in the ONLINE STORE!
Finally, a new working version of the ONLINE STORE is up and running, and of the first time ever, you can use your credit card to make purchases- quickly and safely! At the moment, there are only 9 featured items, however, a more complete version of the store will open on March 1st, 2008! And every order comes packed with freebies, including this new MattBusch.com vinyl bumper sticker! What else will you get? It's too hot to mention, but rest assured the SWAG will be sweet!
This whole section is brand new. In MATT AUDIO, you'll find several radio interviews, with some new podcast chats on the way. In BUSCH VIDEO, you'll find a select group of video shorts from my video channels on MySpaceTV and YouTube. One of the new sections I'm really excited about is DOWNLOADS, where you'll eventually find cool games and items to customize your computer or avatars.
Right now, for the first time ever, I've got 8 really nice WALLPAPERS you can pimp your desktop and screensavers with. Each image is available in three sizes for you to choose from! Another brand new feature are 4 PUZZLES featuring my artwork! These are so fun to do! Seriously, I've already spent hours having fun with these!
Firstly (and a first for me) is the new F.A.Q. page. I don't want to discourage you from saying hi or asking anything, but if you do have a question, please check here first as I may have it answered already! There's a new TOUR DATES page where you'll be able to see where I'll be and when. The LINKS page is updated and so is the CONTACT page, if you want to get in touch with me.
Phew! That's quite a checklist of new things to check out... Anyway, I hope you like the new look and feel. Thank you all so much for all of your support over the years. Seriously. I hope you guys celebrated as much as I did last night!
