Artist and Musician. Passionate about anime hair, JRPGs, and when animals do people stuff. Mostly streaming JRPGs and PS1 games!
I'm Matt Girouard! I'm a Cartoonist, Musician, and JRPG Enthusiast from Chicago, IL. I have been working professionally as an Artist for over 10 years. I love vibrant colors, big floofy anime hair, and expressive characters. I'm also obsessed with JRPGs, especially from the PS1 and PS2 era. I am currently working my way through all of the classics from those systems. 🍕Streams will be a mix of Art and JRPGs!🍖
This is meant to be a welcoming and chill environment. We are just here to make cool art and get nostalgic about retro games. Don't be a jerk and let's all have good time. 🍜 ● Be Respectful ● No Spoilers ● No NSFW Links ● Have Fun!
Here's all of the places on the internet where I waste my time! # [Instagram](https://www.instagram.com/heymattgirouard/) I use Instagram as my portfolio. Lots of finished artwork on here. # [Twitter](https://twitter.com/heymattgirouard) Much more casual than IG. Generally me talking about video games and reposting cool art. # [Music YouTube](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO6CK-REAMyq_3kG9vc4cow) I make music under the name **glassghost** for fun! You can check out some of my songs here. # [Stream Archive](https://www.youtube.com/moremattgirouard) Want to catch up on previous episodes of a gameplay stream? I archive everything on this channel. I also have some stand alone Let's Plays on here as well. Art streams are not currently archived, but I am planning on doing something with them in the future.
I'm still working out a full schedule, but in general it's safe to assume I'll be live on: ● Monday 8PM CST ● Wednesday 8PM CST ● Friday 8PM CST I may stream a few extra days in addition to those and I may also skip days sometimes, but in general this is the goal.
I'm a Professional Cartoonist! I've worked on all kinds of things from t-shirts to comics to mobile apps. You can check out my work on my **[Instagram](https://www.instagram.com/heymattgirouard/)**! Some previous clients include: Hot Topic, Rise Records, & NASA I also make electronic/noodly guitar music for fun under the name **glassghost**! You can check out some of my songs on **[YouTube](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO6CK-REAMyq_3kG9vc4cow)** for now. I'm working on getting everything put up on Spotify and Streaming Services soon!
Feel free to ask me any questions in Chat, but here are some answers for some common questions. # What do you use to make art? I use an 1st Gen iPad Pro 12.9 inch + Apple Pencil in Procreate for all of my Illustration work. Most of my Layout and Graphic Design work is done in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (but mostly Photoshop). # Do you do commissions? Yes! I sometimes have limited slots depending on how busy I am each month, but please DM me on IG or Twitter for rates if you are interested! # What is your Starting Soon/BRB song? It is called **Easy Sunday** by **Bad Snacks**. She is one of my favorite producers and this track is one of dozens she has made royalty free via YouTube's Audio Library. (Although I am planning on replacing it with my own music soon.) # Do you emulate the games you are playing? I prefer to play on the original hardware whenever it is possible, which is most of the time lol. # Are you planning to do any music streams? Yes! I need to get some more hardware to make that happen but I would love to stream music production every once in a while.
