Dangerous Visions

Possessed of a moody sci-fi ambiance—but not in a jumpy pop-culture kind of way—his pieces relocate the viewer from this mundane existence to an exotic mindscape that is partly familiar while being wildly new. To get a glimpse behind Matheson’s creative process, we asked him for these glimpses into his sketchbook.
