Matthew Spencer

Matthew Spencer is a queer illustrator from southeast Michigan.

He works primarily in ink, watercolor and gouache (often embellished with metal leaf), creating pieces inspired by folklore, history, and nature.

His work appears in The Chromatic Fates Tarot, Wyrmwood’s Corrupted Tarot and Unfettered Hexes: Queer Tales of Insatiable Darkness, and he has recently been creating original artwork to sell on Every Day Original. When not painting and drawing for freelance clients or collaborative tarot decks, Matt spends his time playing (or drawing) Dungeons and Dragons characters, and making slow but steady progress on his own Courtly Beasts Tarot.

The Courtly Beasts Tarot- along with a good deal of Matthew’s other personal work- depicts a fantastical world populated by anthropomorphic animals in elaborate costume, set within lush environments both botanical and architectural.
