Matt Sharack (aka Sharackula) is an illustrator and concept artist living in Silver Lake, CA. 

A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Sharack began his career at Nickelodeon in New York City. Moving to Los Angeles in 2003, he spent time working for DreamWorks and Rovio, and is currently a Production Manager at Sony Pictures Animation. Sharack has worked on such films as: Shrek, Monsters v. Aliens, Puss in Boots, Trolls, and Angry Birds.

Inspired by the illustrations and writing of Edward Gorey, Sharack incorporates a whimsical-macabre style in which he hopes viewers can have a laugh even when the subject matter deals with darker times and events. His love for architecture helps him structure worlds in which he can immerse strange and wonderful characters and otherworldly beings. 

Sharack’s most common medium is line drawing with pen and ink, using marker to add gray tones along with digital painting in Photoshop.
