Another track of learning explorations… this time it’s about pianos….
New track exploration, working on completing full track experiences, not individual studies. This one I really tried to push a full sound and somewhat have some structure, contrast, dynamics hmmm..
Completed a banner for http://report.sciencealberta.org/
I think I forgot to mention! Lazslo Kovacs and I created a game for the Android market entitled Finger Swinger.
- Jon Snyder came up with the idea
- Laszlo programmed it!
- I did the art and music
It’s free – get playing today!!
Mom came down with a brain tumor and the magical staff at the Royal Columbian Hospital removed it just fine! She’s 110 %. I was so moved by the whole ordeal I presented this to our neurosurgeon, Dr Heran. Awesome guy
That’s my sister, thanks to Joel, my brother in-law at 4th Dimension Reprographics for the great canvas print!!
Below is a collection of marketing materials I’ve done for a variety of clients (through http://VogtVisuals.com) ! Most are email fliers, PDF, JPG, which can double nicely to craigslist etc. I really like doing these! Thanks for viewing!
Not the first time I painted inspired by the Vedder Bridge, I visit the trail there.
What’s this???? Is it true???
Small teaser, they’re WIP – work in progress yo. Thanks for viewing eh!

Whoa! It sure feels crazy updating this site, especially a wordpress site not for a client. Did you know I started this site around 2005-2006?
New Projects and Updates:
Well I destroyed the old sculpture. There was some wierd topology pinching which I thought the Z Brush geometry helpers would fix (such as equalize, re-mesh etc)… well they didn’t, instead they destroyed my ZSphere polygroups, so I just started over again with great results.
(costume design… next time)
So I’m reading the 6000 page Ken Follett’s Pillars of the Earth. It’s a really, really good book and I’m about 2/3 through. I know they’ve make a TV series etc etc (which I close my eyes to) but for me, reading fiction (a rarity – though a growing interest), grants me the opporunty to stretch my visual storytelling database. I thought I’d share a sketch I’m working on, it’s a love-hate kind of thing me and this piece, it’s coming along:
I’m a pretty big fan of the cloud’s treatment, the random skeletal type connections, the warm/cool tones, flowing composition and some random structure smack dab in the middle…. hmphm
Work in progress, like all these projects! Woohoo!!
Ever try the Z Brush sketchpad???? It’s pretty fun once you understand how the tools translate. Plus! You can draw in symmetry!!! Joy!
In this case, tonight I open Z Brush without a project in mind – once the ‘energy’ was in the right place, ie: I felt good, I sketched a couple gestures and the idea of a mother holding her child said go gogogoggoo!!! That’s all it took. I’d like to learn more about fabric folds etc so I think this would a good project to do so….
Hey sports fans! I’ve created a page on this website dedicated to my latest passion – music creation! I swear my ears have gotten bigger playing with this stuff. I love music and always have. More info to come!
I do hear it’s possible but it sure felt impossible making really mechanical type creations. I learnt some neat things with more complicated masking via ‘poly groups’ but the workflow seems counter intuitive. Intuitive workflows for me allow me to go back and forth without making unchangeable updates. Matter of fact, these damned things caused some frustration…..
(I don’t know why posted that, it looks like a red face, actually that’s my face when I worked on some different workflows)
(it’s an organic approach to something hard-bodied….)
And finally! Some cool editing techniques, which are impossible to edit. wow….
I’m teaching web marketing at VCAD (vancouver college of art and design), amongst other business dev and photoshop and I’m just linking to a couple students websites to share my ranking star power. I’ll probably delete this once they index themselves! Woohoo! The assignment is about SEO and making websites appear on google when searching for ” The Greatest Living Vancouverite “. It’s a race to # 1! (hope I don’t wax them with this post hahaha!
The Greatest Living Vancouverite
Yep it’s a little humbling looking at Zhu’s video tutorial service: http://www.youtube.com/user/FZDSCHOOL
Thanks man!!! I believe the school’s located in Singapore.
I recorded a whopping 1:25 hours of 100% commentaried Matt Vogt Painting Process. I would like to do these more and more. Yesterday night is when this took place. Now please note what you’ll witness is an artist warming up from a day or two painting break. It’s like training a muscle (not speaking from experience) but we achieved some interesting results despite staring art making doom directly in the face. Yes.
This is the part of the video that was intentionally depicted to show how an artist can get his butt kicked by his own work:
(it was getting shaky in there) And this?

- Color Picking
- ‘Sweet Tweaks’ to keep the flow going and never give up (seen middle image?)
- Using layer adjustments to our advantage
- A layered, yet committed (backward) approach
