This month’s FAM also celebrated his birthday this month. He’s a high school friend and a very talented artist. He’s none other than Greg Raposon.
Featured Artist of the Month: Greg Raposon
We were classmates in high school and became really good friends with fellow artists and enthusiasts. My go-to medium would be pen and paper, his are laptop and graphic tablet. Only guessing about the latter.
He has been doing digital work for as long as I could remember. I am always amazed at what he can do even if you just give him a photo. From vector art to digital paintings, you’ll be forever amazed just like I am.
So without further ado, here’s Greg Raposon as this month’s featured artist.
Oh and btw, belated happy birthday! ✨

I had fun learning the tools in Photoshop. Also, I feel free in expressing my thoughts through digital art. I thought I could never create a piece of art because I didn’t know how to do traditional drawings.
