Dylan Cole is a southern California native who began drawing at an early age. Early interests in comic books and sci-fi illustration eventually led him to an obsession with matte painting.

After graduating from UCLA and an influential internship at ILM, he got his start with a brief stint at Illusion Arts on “Time Machine.” Smaller jobs as a matte painter and concept artist led to him working at Rhythm and Hues on “Daredevil.”

He then left his native California to go to New Zealand to be a senior matte painter on “Return of the King” for Weta Digital. Dylan was in New Zealand for almost a year and contributed to many of the films epic environments, such as Mordor and Mt. Doom.

He returned to the US as Lead Matte Painter on “The Chronicles of Riddick” for Rhythm and Hues, where he transitioned to Visual Effects Art Director on “The Ring 2.” Dylan has since switched to freelance matte painting on many different films including, “I, Robot,” “The Aviator,” “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” “ Superman Returns,” and “The Golden Compass.”

Dylan has also balanced his matte painting with concept work, working for more than a year on James Cameron’s “Avatar”, and most recently Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” He also created the movie posters for both of those films. His latest matte paintings can be seen in the upcoming films, “2012”, and “The Road.” Dylan enjoys teaching workshops at various events and schools around the world and has a line of instructional DVDs from the Gnomon Workshop..
