Sketching The Line

GregBetza_sketchingTheLine

I’m honored to be included in the Canadian ART IN TRANSIT show “Sketching The Line”, an exhibition of reportage drawings made while of commuters and subway-goers. Back in 2007-8 I took advantage of my time on NYC subways by drawing anyone I could. For practice, yes, and because I just love to do it. I find that the older I get, my career and the opportunities presented... Read More

Public Speaking

Apparently Pearson has been publishing this book for quite some time and was looking to update the cover. From what I was told they always use illustrated covers for this series, so I was thrilled when my work was selected for the ninth edition.

The illustrations were commissioned by Senior Market Advisor magazine to highlight end of life financial issues that we all have to deal with but are either uneducated about or unaware of. The articles were interesting and I enjoyed the education. I’d love to hear what you think. ... Read More

DSC_2591

Workbook held its annual Creative Carnival last Thursday in Chicago. Fellow Studio 1482 member Dominick Santise and I decided to hop in a car and drive from NY/NJ out to the windy city. We had a great trip and even better time at the carnival. What’s better than showcasing what you love to do in the company of people that are interested in what you love to do, and having a... Read More
