Cartoon illustrator Greg Hardin really does it all! A former Licensing Illustrator/Designer at Hallmark Cards, Inc., Greg has spent his career doing licensing and book illustration, toy and product design, graphics and motion graphics. He’s worked with a number of big-name licenses, including Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks, Marvel, Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. and more. Greg was also the in-house character artist at the animation studio, Big Idea Productions (responsible for “VeggieTales” and “3-2-1 Penguins”), where he illustrated books, designed toys, contributed art to animated films, and worked on live shows and theme park rides.
As a freelance illustrator, Greg has worked on projects for The Walt Disney Company, Scholastic, Simon and Schuster, and Spongebob Squarepants, to name a few. He has also illustrated over 75 children’s books, in addition to designing “more toys and plush than he can count.” Recently, Greg has been working on a 16-book series from Hachette Book Group and JellyTelly Press. The books are based on the video series, “What’s in the Bible?” by Phil Vischer, the creator of “VeggieTales.” Take a look at this fun artwork Greg produced for some of the series’ earlier books:
