If you haven't seen this site yet....you need to! It's basically a giant gallery of photos wrecked exotics, imports, supercars, ect.... It's rad. Plus I'm doing a piece for them of ferraris, lambos, and whatever else the average man can't afford, crashing together similar to my "hot rod pileup" piece. Looks like the one is was planning to paint with every year caddilac is on the backburnner. Ferraris are cool though I guess if you got the money. Let's see what they look like totally fucked up!!!!

Just finished this one last night, this is a little illustration I did for grandma for Christmas....she's also turning 90 so I had to do somethin for her. I grabbed a cool photo of her and my grandpop at Atlantic City back in the 60's and used it as reference. She'll dig it.

Fast Forward to color version! Just finished coloring in my pen and ink "HOT ROD PILEUP" last night, or morning I should say. Anyways it's finally fucking DONE....2 months of coloring on the computer will drive you nuts. So I scanned in my pen and ink drawing and went nuts. No refrence from here on out other than flipping through some magazines. I'm pumped on the outcome...probably the best piece of art I've done in a while. Now just gotta get some digital prints and screen prints made for Billetproof coming up in Feb.
This is the beginning of my new series that I am obssessing over. Ever since I was young I have had this weird attraction to car wrecks in movies and any violent wreck I'd see on the road. I destroyed hundreds of hotwheels and model cars as my unknown artistic outlet for automotive destruction. Finally at 26 I've found the only art I can produce and be completely content with has to have hot rods, wrecks, and girls. Here's my newest piece of my interpretation of 36 hot rods being smashed together simultaniously. It's done in pen and ink and was completed slowly in a period of about 6 months or so. Basically all my refrence came from "Rod and Kulture Magazine," and I did the guesswork on what all the cars would look like smashed.
Hey Everyone, My name is Nate Greco, I'm a "professional" illustrator and graphic artist in the Tampa Bay area. I graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2006 with a bachelors in Fine Arts, and majoring primarily in Illustration. By day I work for Creative Arts Inc, a company that builds instalations for libraries, exhibits,hospitals, Disney, ..ect. Basically my job is to draw all the concept ideas (using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator) for our clients nationwide. By night I am working on my personal artwork that consists of Hot Rods, Wrecked Hot Rods, Pin Up Gals, and ZOMBIES!! My medias of choice for the upcoming series are pen and ink, oils, watercolor, and digital painting. I have been working on my new series for quite a while now, and my new work is slowly getting finished now... so be on the look out!
