"Such a Good Boyee!"
by Greg McCullough
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 began his collaboration when Disney/Pixar approved Artifx for packaging illustrations for their upcoming release of Toy Story. A contract for Toy Story 2 and A Bug's Life shortly followed. One of Greg's biggest thrills during this busy time was signing prints of his Pixar artwork for John Lassiter's private collection. Several of his pieces have earned POPAI awards, including his artwork for Disney 100 Years. 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. 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."
