Inside out - Greg Terry
Inside out - Greg Terry
I am absolutely thrilled to interview the self-professed graphic artist & illustrator.

Young and passionate designer UK-based Greg Terry is the first artist chosen from the Krftd + Society 6 grant. Created to empower the artists of the world, this is an opportunity for creative individuals to evoke and share their passion.

Hi Greg, could you tell us more about yourself?
Well first off thanks for having me on its such a great source of inspiration and utopia of creativity going on and Im glad to be a part of it all. So back to your original question, myself Im a young freelance graphic artist, illustrator and all round maker of imagery. I live and work in the United Kingdom only a short train ride away from the late great London. I work on a variety of projects on a daily basis, client bases, self-initiated and a few collaborative.

We love to have you with us too. So, what inspired you to be a designer and illustrator?
Well just from a very young age I was always fascinated by cartoons, not so much watching them for the story themselves but for more of the animation, colours and my personal favorite the repeating backdrop. In my eyes Hanna Barbera is the single one thing that got me into creative mind set, after an episode of what ever I was watching from The Flintstones to Top Cat or Tom and Jerry I would quickly get jotting down plans and designs for my own cartoon strip and what I would add or take away from it all. You could most properly call me a geek by the age of six or seven.

Of course as far as what inspired me to be a designer/illustrator was down to my family, they always encouraged me to do what makes me happy and this just seemed to be right. (And also enviably brought the TV into the household which broadcasted these cartoons straight into my eye sockets)

Aw thats sweet. What to you, is most important doing what you do?
Just being creative everyday makes me a happy little bunny, I try to do a lot of different mediums. So I go from doing a poster print series to customizing Russian dolls for an exhibition for instance. For me two days are never the same, and thats just how I like it. I like being busy, so Ive always got something to think about and plan either on the train or just laying in the bath, always plotting my next move like a good chess player I suppose.
