Gregbo Watson – Self Portrait

Posted by In Gregboisms, Illustration, Portfolio, Portfolio : Illustration 1 comment Tagged , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Its been a long time since I painted a self-portrait. The last one that I did was probably way back in Art School. So I felt that it was time to do a new one that reflects my dark, scary self. I’ve always felt that painting a self-portrait is an excellent exercise for artists and illustrators, and is arguably one of the more difficult subjects for us to tackle.

For this portrait, I chose to paint myself during a moment of drifting off, elsewhere into deep thought (which I am often known to do). And, as those who know me well can attest to, I am probably lost in the creative zone thinking about my work. This is why I chose to incorporate some of my unfinished character sketches surrounding me in the background. I also chose to portray myself wearing my Ozzy Osbournesque dark sunglasses, skull earrings, and a t-shirt featuring some sort of creature, which is how I am most often dressed.

Gregbo Visits Coffee Corner at Robinson Funeral Home

Gregbo Gets Starbucks at Easley Coffee Corner

Today the new Coffee Corner opened at Robinson Funeral Home in Easley, SC. This is the first and only coffee shop in Easley that serves the Starbucks brand. The place is absolutely gorgeous and obviously the coffee is fantastic! While there has been no “Grand Opening” yet, the shop is open and serving. This is awesome for me because my studio is located just down the road, so I can now grab a Starbucks whenever the mood hits without having to drive out of the city. After all of the world-wide media attention this received, I have been anxiously waiting for Coffee Corner to open. This morning, I met my father at the shop and bought him a cup of coffee while we both checked the place out. It really is quite amazing. If you grew up in Easley, you will notice that the entrance faces Main Street and the parking lot was once used by the “historic” Colony Theater… Which brings back some great memories from my youth.

Along with coffee, they are serving other goodies such as cookies and muffins. The Robinson’s are good friends of mine and I think they have a huge hit on their hands. (Way to go Chris and Rebecca!!) I wish them continued success and am really going to enjoy having easy access to Starbucks in my home town.

Coffee Corner is now open and located in Downtown Easley, SC at Robinson Funeral Home.

Avengers… Assemble! — Shots from My Studio

Posted by In Cool Factor, Gregboisms, Pop Culture 0 comments Tagged , , ,

Working as an artist, I think it is important to surround yourself with things that inspire you. Throughout my home and studio, I have all types of oddities and cool stuff that I’ve picked up over the years. Having seen Captain America this weekend, including the awesome Avengers trailer after the credits, I thought it would be cool to post some shots from around my studio of items from the Avengers.

Also, if you look closely, you will see an Ant Man/Giant Man (Hank Pym) action figure lurking in the background of the picture of Thor’s Hammer, Mjolnir.
