Mat Gonzales '86


After many corporate positions, including design director at Marvel Toys, Matang Gonzales is freelancing and is able to make a living building on the many contacts he made in New York. He still does graphic design and illustration, conceptual design and renderings, control art and packaging. An interesting piece is on a set, building a large pirate ship in Sleepy Hollow, New York, as part of a pirate festival. Several months earlier, he was hired to do a 12” action figure of the Johnny Depp character, Jack Black, for Pirates 4 and said, “I must be in a pirate phase.”

He has conducted workshops and was a 1992 master teaching artist for the CT Commission on the Arts. He has shown his work at the Gonzales Family Show, Philippine Consulate in NYC, at the Alan Stone Gallery in NYC and at the John Slade Ely House, reviewed in NYC. Click here to see more of his work.
