The Art Of Goldcucco

GoldCucco is the alias for Greg Wright, a very talented up and coming illustrator with a heavily graphic style perfect for editorial work. Using a relatively subdued color palette, clean lineart and bold compositions, his pieces are all relatively pleasing to the eye. Among some of Greg's inspirations behind his style: Ukiyo-e (Japanese woodcut prints), Greek pottery and traditional Disney feature animation. I especially noticed the woodcut inspiration thanks to the flatness of some of the compositions and the color choices he made.

Greg is currently underway on a truly awesome set of illustrations for each of the 12 Zodiac signs, which we can't wait to purchase in print form. Check out more of his awesome art after the break, and keep track of his relatively rapid progress on his Tumblr!
