Illustrator, gallery artist and designer Greg Betza works for clients like The Chicago Tribune, E & J Gallo Winery, St Louis Magazine, Utne and DDB. He has received recognition from The Society of Illustrators of LA, Communication Arts and American Illustration.
Betza creates wonderfully loose, gestural line drawings filled with bright splashes of watercolor. Interestingly, many of them appear do be done in pencil, in addition to the more traditional approach of ink and watercolor.
His site features a portfolio of both illustrations and location drawings (reportage) of places like France, Greece and New York City. You can also find more of his casual, personal drawings in his Flickr sets, and a different variety of images on his Blog and in the galleries on Studio 1482, a collective art and design site in which he is a member. There is a supplementary Gallery 1482 associated with the group, and a collaborative blog, one drawing a day in which he also participates.
Betza is the subject this week of a Communication Arts “Fresh” feature.
