For our 25 hour Disney Infinity Extra Life Marathon, Musician, concept artist, and New York Times best seller Matthew Armstrong was kind enough to talk with us. He shared with us a little bit about not only being a concept artist in general, but also his work on Disney Infinity. His work can be seen in Violet, Lone Ranger, Jack Skellington and show favorite, Vanellope, so many of our favorites. It was a very interesting interview and we learned a lot about the design process of the figures and some of the challenges in designing for a game and something new to the team, the Toys. And it sounds like Matthew’s collection, is one that rivals Jason’s.

If you want to learn more about Matthew and his work, please check out the links below. You will find his portfolio, personal site/blog, Facebook page, and a link to his latest book. He has another book coming out within the next year, so be on the look out for that as well.
