United States
Hi! I am an illustrator and graphic cartoonist who dabbles quite a bit in biological illustration and scientific visualization. I have a Bachelor's in Fine Art Degree in Illustration from the Academy of Art, University in San Francisco, California. I'm also an alumni of the legendary, Kubert School of Graphic Art, in Dover, NJ.

In 2012, my wife and I started a boutique clothing company called Cotton Crustacean. Scroll down to see our designs, featuring my scientific illustrations of prehistoric marine life, printed on premium, American Apparel tees. Visit us at www.cottoncrustacean.com

When not drawing crabs or sea cucumbers, I play guitar and sing in the progressive rock band, GIANT SQUID (www.giantsquidlives.com) and play bass in the Jaws obsessed, pirate-sludge band, CARTILAGE.

Current Residence: Sharp Park, Pacifica, CA

I've been chosen to represent my 2015 BFA graduating class at the Academy of Art, University as their valedictorian. A truly immense honor for me! Time to prepare my speech, which I'll have to give in front of something like 10,000 people at the Cow Palace.
Giant Ammonite by aaronjohngregory
Giant Ammonite
The king of mollusks, the prehistoric Giant Ammonite. He's accompanied by some fun paleo-sharks like the Stethocanthus, Hybodus, and some prehistoric Coelacanth like lobe-fin fish. This guy might have to find his way on a Cotton Crustacean t-shirt soon...

Conus Sea-snail by aaronjohngregory
Conus Sea-snail
The Conus; a venomous predatory sea-snail. Lke a little poisonous battle tank, the conus is strong enough to kill a grown adult person. This poor long-nose hawk fish doesn't stand a chance. Commonly found all over in tropical waters, from California to the Red Sea.

Noble Pen Shells by aaronjohngregory
Noble Pen Shells
Noble pen shells in a field of seagrass. These bivalves are known also as fan mussels, and are found in the Mediterannean, reaching up to four feet in length! And, like so many beautiful things in the ocean, are close to extinction due to pollution, trawling, decline of seagrass beds, and anchoring of ships.

AAU article by aaronjohngregory

Walked in to class today on the first day of my very last week, ever, as an BFA student in Illustration at AAU, and saw this huge one page feature article in the Academy of Art, University paper. Of course, I did the interwiew a while back, so knew something was going to come out eventually, but a FULL PAGE!? Honored and floored. My teachers we're equally stoked and proud to see it. What a great way to wrap up 5.5 years of non-stop, full time art school.

Here's a digital version of it online - much easier to read. blogs.academyart.edu/newspaper…
  • Listening to: Googoosh
  • Reading: Gardners Non-Western Perspective Art History
  • Watching: Boardwalk Empire
  • Playing: Metal Gear 5 hopefully soon
  • Drinking: Lots of Coffee, Anchor Steam Holiday Brew
