About Me

Hi there! I'm Gregory Stewart, a graphic designer living in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. Life brought me here in 1999, when I left home in Arkansas to pursue my career in the digital arts.

Art has been a passion of mine ever since I was a child. Back then I didn't draw on the computer...that came later. I loved drawing, mostly cartoon characters; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Garfield, Darkwing Duck, and Roger Rabbit. I became aware of my talent in junior high school, after winning a number of contests. I had aspirations of becoming a Disney animator, but then the computer entered my life.

It started with Microsoft Paint, and then, through my dad, I got into 3d graphics. I remember my first rudimentary 3d attempts; sure, they were crude and amateur, but everyone has to start somewhere. And it was then that I discovered what I wanted to do in life!

Upon completion of my 3D Modeling and Animation degree from Cogswell Polytechnical College in Sunnyvale, CA, I got a job producing video production content for Cisco Systems, as well as web, animation, and print design.

Currently I work at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, a particle physics laboratory operated by Stanford University for the US Department of Energy. As a scientific graphics and visualizations developer, I produce 3d animations, as well as various print and web designs. I'm a jack of all trades.

My work has appeared in print, television, and online. Most notably The New York Times, JEOPARDY!, Nature Journal, NBCNEWS.com, The Huffington Post, Fox News, and Wired.com.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, photography, cooking...and creating Star Trek art. I was a featured artist in the Simon & Schuster published Star Trek: Ships of the Line 2010 Calendar. Also, I placed 3rd in a Star Trek t-shirt design contest, coinciding with the release of the 2009 Star Trek movie.
