My Bio
Hi! I am an illustrator and graphic cartoonist who dabbles quite a bit in biological illustration and scientific visualization. For hire inquiries, please contact me via aaronjohngregory.com

I graduated sum laude and as class valedictorian with a Bachelor's in Fine Art Degree in Illustration from the Academy of Art, University in San Francisco, California in Fall of 2014. I'm also an alumni of the legendary, Kubert School of Graphic Art, in Dover, NJ where I studied from 2009-2010.

In 2012, my wife and I started a boutique clothing company called Cotton Crustacean, featuring my scientific illustrations of prehistoric marine life, printed on premium tees. Visit us at www.cottoncrustacean.com!

When not drawing crabs or sea cucumbers, I play guitar and sing in the progressive metal band, KHôRADA (www.khorada.com) and play bass/sing in the JAWS obsessed, synth-sludge band, SQUALUS (thissongisaboutsharks.net).
