Foliage illustrations

Here is a sheet of thumbnail sketches for a packaging project I worked on a few months ago. The package was to be covered in a pattern made of foliage, mainly tropical leaves. As is often the case in packaging, the final project took a different direction 🤷🏻‍♂️ Greg Betza ©2022

Been awhile

  During the pandemic (the height of it) I was drawing all the time via zoom. Since things have calmed down I’ve done it less and less. Many reasons why, but that’s another story. Here is a drawing I found from a year or two ago while cleaning up my studio. Greg Betza ©2022

These marker drawings are from a Destroyer concert in 2011. Funny I came across these today as I was just listening to his new album. I wouldn’t say it’s for everyone, but if you give them a chance and you get it, you can’t get enough. Greg Betza ©2022

A drink today

This fellow was enjoying this holiday as so many others do. While I personally don’t know how I feel about the way people celebrate today, I do enjoy how happy today seems to make everyone. We all need that break, regardless of the reason, every now and then. Greg Betza ©2022

Winter blooms

Down in Florida it feels like summer almost all of the time, however some trees do shed and regrow their leaves and/or flowers. Sitting in a parking lot last night I drew some of the palm trees and a crepe myrtle already in bloom. Greg Betza ©2022
