|Award winning artist Greg Horn is currently the lead artist on Disney’s MARVEL: WAR OF HEROES, a Top Ten mobile game app designed for APPLE IPHONE and ANDROID. THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY brought Horn on to this high-profile project to create 30 unique MARVEL COMICS character illustrations, most of which are highly sought-after rare cards. The block-buster game has been an overnight sensation, consistently ranking in Apple iTunes store’s top 5 apps for nearly a year straight, with more than 20 million downloads in just the past 3 months! Greg’s other current work includes variant covers for two of Marvel Comic’s best selling titles: AVENGERS #1 and THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1! |
Horn is one of the most prolific artists in the world, having worked in multiple industries for over a decade. From his unforgettable covers for MARVEL and DC COMICS to his colossal painting of the US OLYMPIC BASKETBALL TEAM for Allstate Insurance, it is not difficult to come across the artist’s work. He has completed assignments on more than 20 advertising campaign/ads in the United States, UK, Canada, The Netherlands, and France as a commercial illustrator, providing posters, illustrations and concept work for some of the biggest names in the industry.

Horn was also commissioned to paint the 132nd poster for the RINGLING BROS. AND BARNUM & BAILEY CIRCUS, and created the program guide illustrations for the Broadway hit SPIDER-MAN:TURN OFF THE DARK.
Greg has also made his mark in the video game industry as a freelance digital illustrator, artist, and designer. Be it high-detailed, packaging art design, print advertising, promotional art for posters, or point of purchase, Greg has done it all. His project list reads like a who’s who in video gaming including EA SPORTS (NBA LIVE), THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY, CAPCOM, SONY INTERACTIVE (EVERQUEST 2), ROCKSTAR (MAX PAYNE), UNIVERSAL STUDIOS (2 FAST 2 FURIOUS and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT, 2K GAMES (SERIOUS SAM 2), DIGITAL EXTREMES, IGNITED MINDS, 3D REALMS, and HIP GAMES.
Magazine cover illustration has been a long-time staple of Greg’s career ever since he was hired on as the regular cover artist for FUTURE NETWORKS, providing punchy images for their best-selling publications: 100% PSM (PLAYSTATION), THE OFFICIAL XBOX MAGAZINE, and PCGAMER. During this time, he also painted covers for WIZARD MAGAZINE, and still holds the record for the most Wizard covers all-time! During one 5-year period, Greg painted over 60 magazine covers (an incredible average of 1 cover every month for five years straight!)
Advertising and video games aside, Greg is still best known for his published cover art for MARVEL COMICS. He has created hundreds of comic book covers for fan favorite titles such as ELEKTRA, EMMA FROST, SHE-HULK, and MS MARVEL. During this time, entertainment website IGN.com, held their “Battle of the Comic Babes” competition. More than half a million fans voted to determine the hottest comic book character of all time, with Greg’s sexy paintings of Emma Frost destroying all 64 entrants! Soon after, Greg was hired on at DC COMICS to contribute to their hit crossover event BLACKEST NIGHT. He provided covers for a multitude of top selling variants including WONDER WOMAN, GREEN LANTERN, GL CORPS, THE FLASH, and RISE OF ARSENAL. Horn has also worked for many independent publishers such as IMAGE COMICS, ZENESCOPE, TOP COW, and VIRGIN just to name a few.
