Aaron John Gregory
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Hi! I am an illustrator and graphic cartoonist who dabbles quite a bit in biological illustration and scientific visualization. I graduated as valedictorian with a Bachelor's in Fine Art Degree in Illustration from the Academy of Art, University in San Francisco, California in Fall of 2014. I'm also an alumni of the legendary, Kubert School of Graphic Art, in Dover, NJ where I studied from 2009-2010.

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, SQUALUS (going-to-need-a-bigger-boat.ba…).

Current Residence: Sharp Park, Pacifica, CA

Cabin in the Woods, Wave Approaches by aaronjohngregory
Cabin in the Woods, Wave Approaches
This was an album cover commission that the band ended up not using. They wanted a dilapidated cabin, overgrown in a Northwest forest, with a massive tsunami approaching in the far distance. Hopefully they use it for something else.

Done in acrylic, with a hint of photoshop darkening and color adjustment.

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
