Here is a sneak Peak of the kid's book I'm doing with my friend Rey Ortega. It's a delighful tale of a Rhino and his his Oxpecker friend (oxpecker is a bird for those who don't know). I'm working on colouring it in as we speak. Keep posted for more drawings and maybe even a final or two from it.

I've continued working with inks and watercolour. I love it. I'm trying to mix a more realistic style with my usual graphic approach. Anyway I started a new job with Groove games and I'm in between places right now so I haven't been able to scan any of my new work. Eventually I post them all on my website, but for now this is a little preview of what's to come.

That's right!... here I am posting my second post in a month. It's been a long time since I've done that. Anyway, Here's a work in progress. I wish I would have scanned it after the drawing stage to give you the complete evolution, but I just got my scanner yesterday. It was a graduation present from my mom. I'll post some of the steps as I complete the piece. I went back to watercolour on paper. Man it was fun. They give the human figure such life. More to come...

Hey there. It's been a rollercoaster ride all summer. I've been teaching full-time so it's been hard to keep on track with my art. Keeping up with the little kids has taken all of my energy. No excuses though, I feel like if you want to do something you'll make time for it. Here is a sneak preview of a piece I did for a group show I'm planning with a group of friends. I hope you like it. My style has evolved a little bit since school ended, and I'm excited to see where this takes me. Gmons over and out.

Word to your mothers. It's been a long time since I updated my blog. I've been doing a little bit of work here and there, but mostly hunting for jobs and concept work. Two new things in the mix, 1.) I've been working on a children's book with my friend Rey (see links). The image posted is a collage of character sketches I've done lately. I wanna be able to draw Rocky the Rhino with my eyes closed, I think I'm almost there. 2.) A group of friends and I are planning a group show for fall(ish). I'll keep you posted on the progress as I find out myself.

Here are some sketches and research I've been doing on mutual symbiosis (when two animals benefit from a relationship with each other). I've been focusing on the oxpecker and it's relatiosnhip with large mammals (like your mother). All this research is for a kids book i hope to do with my friend Rey. I'm stoked on the idea and I hope we actually get it done. Until next time kiddies.

Well, I'm finally done school. Hard to believe. Probably because I'm sitting in the studio at Sheridan right now. I took the weekend off even though I have lots to do for the year end show on Thursday April 26, 2007 (visit www.sheridanheadlines.ca for details). I went to visit my grrl Ally in Waterloo. I had a crazy bus ride there and hectic run to catch our go-train on the way back. This is a sketch from a brief moment of sanity waiting for the bus on the way there.

I'm super busy right now. I know, I know... I always say that. This time I mean it. I'm working on an after effects video right now. It should be done next week. I'll try and post it then. This pic is the cover of my old sketch book. I've updated my website a ton lately, so check it out (www.ghillustration.ca). I haven't had much Greg time lately I even missed UFC 69. I take full responsibilty for George St. Pierre losing. I am sorry George. We'll be back bro.

Working hard even though it's Reading Week and I should be on a beach somewhere. Anyway Here are some sketches for my comic called "There's nothing to do in St. Ratford". It's a compilation of stories (85% of which may be true) about growing up in a small town. I should have lots to post soon, I'm busy as hell right now.

Oh yeah alot of you complained about the size of the images on my website, si i made them bigger. you win.

I finally got my website uploaded. No thanks to you domainsatcost.ca. What a hassle that was. Anyway here are some sketches I did for a project (sorry about the shadows). I'm going to be writing and illustrating a bunch of stories I have collected over the years. It's about growing up in a small town and the stupid shit you do there when you're bored. The final should be up on my website soontimes.

I had an amazing christmas break. Far too much drinking and watching TV, but a much needed break. Anyway I'm close to put my website up (www.ghillustration.ca). Here is a painting I did this summer, it's not really done, but I like the way it looks now so here it is.
