Fantastic! Thank you for sharing your life Mr. Manchess, and thank you sidebar for providing this interview.

Tiffany Prothero

Greg is amazing. Thank you for posting this :)

ken meyer jr

I cannot wait to read this sucker...this guy is a god among gods in the illustration world. Love this site!

Christine Thomas

That was wonderful. I want to listen to it over and over. It is just what I needed to hear for where I'm at with my art and schooling. Is there a transcript available?

(Swain re: No Christine, there isn't, but we too want you to listen to it over and over. Manchess is The Great One---he rocketh!)

Jeremy Forson

So enlightening! The bit about not worrying over how original your art is took a load off my back haha! Also how he had many styles and was not focused is the boat I'm in now, it was great to hear how he resolved it, and how it was holding him back. Fantastic show guys!


Hey guys, thought you might get a kick out of this:

Michael Dooney

Great interview, thanks! I had the good fortune of taking a painting workshop that Greg taught last summer at the Norman Rockwell Museum. His work is inspiring as hell and he's a great teacher too, taking each student at whatever level they're at and encouraging and nudging forward. Yeah, he's the painter I want to be when I grow up ;)


This was a wonderful interview. very insightful. I got a lot out of it. I didnt know he did illustrated for Omni magazine.
I have the first 10 issues of Omni so i will take a look.

(re: They were awesome weren't they very classy, thanks Eddy! ~D)

Ray Bonilla

George Pratt AND Greg Manchess in a row!? You guys are awesome ...

(Swain re: Ray, it's easy to be considered awesome standing near those two guys. We really had a wonderful time with 'em---they were very nice. Thanks, sir!)


Tremendous interview. Once again, you ALL wax poetic! Thanks to everyone who made this interview possible and especially to you 3, Dwight,Swain and Greg.
