Making his 2008 debut in The Art of Disney Galleries, Greg McCullough has finally found a place he can call his artistic home. A life filled with many personal and professional illustration achievements, painting Disney characters in oils has become Greg's magnum opus, combining his joy of subject matter with love of the medium.
''I have a passion for the grace and simplicity of animated characters. Painting with oils allows me to challenge my skills further than any other medium.''
Greg's professional career started at age 15, when he became a caricature artist at Six Flags Over Texas. By 18, he was illustrating for ad agencies across North Texas and in 1998, he received national exposure with a series of Looney Tunes character illustrations for Tyson Foods.
With a dozen years of Disney inspired work through advertising agencies, in 2007 Greg found himself producing graphics for the Disney Parks through the Disney Design Group. His first assignment was the 2009 ''dated'' Disney Parks logo followed by over 40 additional illustrations that are seen by thousands everyday in the Disney Parks and the Disney Cruise Lines.
Also in 2007 Greg was introduced to the Art of Disney Fine Art Galleries which ultimately gave him the one title he can live with - Disney Fine Artist.
Greg's style brings Disney characters, and the world they live in, to life. ''My goal is to create works of art that allow visitors to take a bit of the magic of Disney home with them.''
