M. Mrakota Orsman

Designer, Illustrator, & Devotee of Humorous Errata

Artist M. Mrakota “Matt” Orsman jokes that he was born with a pencil in his hand but only has over 35 years of experience as a professional illustrator and designer. A self-taught cartoonist with degrees in Liberal Arts and Graphic Communications/New Media, he’s developed techniques in digital art that have allowed him to expand his client base worldwide.  

In addition to illustration and caricature, Matt has an extensive background in graphic design, designing everything from retail signage to complete publication layouts in various styles.

Educational Background

After completing a degree in Graphic Communications: New Media from WATC (now known as WSU Tech), Matt was asked to join the teaching staff, taking over for a departing instructor. While there, he taught classes in Photoshop, Mac Operations, Advanced Media Production, and Desktop Video Production. He also paid back to the community by leading internet, elementary PC use, and stop-motion animation workshops. He has also worked with other artists in a mentorship capacity, encouraging young visual artists or working with like-minded peers in the theatrical and design communities.

Genuine Mirth

Matt uses his experience in theater and visual arts to holistically analyze a situation and come up with an effective design solution. This ability allows him to distill the story of the project, providing his clients with terrific images that delight them.
