Creating a moment that communicates emotionally with the viewer is the essence of Gregory Manchess' artwork.
He combined his love for fine art and science fiction and began his freelance career painting for OMNI magazine. His versatility and broad range of interests allowed him to crossover to mainstream illustration, where he was able to expand his client work to include covers for Time, Atlantic Monthly, and National Geographic, as well as spreads for Newsweek, and Rolling Stone.
Widely awarded, Manchess exhibits at the Society of Illustrators in New York, where his peers presented him with their highest honor, the coveted Hamilton King Award.
Gregory is included in Walt Reed's latest edition of "The Illustrator in America, 1860-2000." He lectures frequently at universities a colleges nationwide and the Illustration Master Class in Amherst, MA.
