|After creating the cover for their new
comic series "Shadow Hunter", Virgin Comics invited me to a private
meeting with Jenna Jameson... not THAT kind of private meeting, you
filthy minded bastards. Anyway, she signed my personal print:
"Greg, thanks for making me look so beautiful" It took every ounce
of self control to keep from sobbing openly. Eventually, I sucked
it up and we took a photo together.
- Hey! I have been inducted into The

Horn has been tapped to produce the illustration for the
United States Olympic Basketball team.
In what is undoubtedly the most anticipated, most visible marketing event of
the Olympic Games, his painting will showcase this team of all-stars on an
international stage in Athens, Greece. Previously, the
central image for the U.S. team has always been a photograph.
But, due to his work with Nike on the Lebron James billboard, Allstate
(the official sponsor of the team) commissioned Greg to produce a painting
instead. Greg's highly detailed, realistic style manages to
capture the familiar likenesses of the players while still allowing a higher
level of artistic freedom than standard photography. The
project was a massive undertaking, especially with the roster having been in
flux until only recently. Ironically, these complications made
it possible for Lebron James to be added to the team for Greg to paint him
again! The illustration will appear in a number of high-profile

- Writer extraordinaire BRIAN BENDIS will be writing the foreword for Greg's
very first artbook, THE ART OF GREG HORN.
The two have known each other since 1996 when they toured California and
Vegas together as part
of the Psychic, Gun, Sickle Tour. Brian might just have the best
perspective on how this book finally came about!
Two of Greg Horn's ELEKTRA paintings were shown on MTV's music countdown
program called TRL (July 02, 2004). The show aired an interview
with Elektra actress Jennifer Garner who reported she would be wearing the
original red costume of Elektra (good!). The illustrations shown were the
covers to Elektra #1 and #2.
Greg's illustrations have also been featured in USA TODAY, STUFF magazine, The
Shield (FX!), Queer as Folk (Showtime), and Hispanics Today.
They just did it again! On July 6th, TRL composited Jennifer Garner in
