A trivial way is to add a counter for the figure...
fig=0; % Initialize
for k = 1:2
for j = 1:8;

Or, even more simply, Matlab will automagically open a new figure

for k = 1:2
for j = 1:8;

As Steven showed you can compute the figure number for a given k,j
combination algebraically if needed (assuming start w/ none open
already--if so, add the offset or clear 'em out)
