Greg Preslicka came into painting murals somewhat on a whim. One summer his kids asked him too paint something on their bedroom walls. That turned into painting other kid's rooms. Then he had the opportunity to bid on painting a YMCA gym. They wanted a 360° mural of a fun jungle scene. After being awarded the bid he realized he had never painted anything quite that big. Nearly scare out of his wits he decided he needed to practice since he had never painted anything standing 12' up on a ladder. So he found the biggest wall he could in his garage and practiced by painting a palm tree and monkeys. The neighbors were quite confused as to why he had monkeys in his garage but the practice helped and the YMCA gym was a success and lead to nearly 100 more murals.
Along with painting big stuff Greg has had a successful career as a graphic designer specializing in package, retail and kids design. Over his 30+ career he worked on projects for; Nabisco, General Mills, Malt-O-Meal, Hormel, 3M, and many municipalities.
Recently Greg has turned his talents to inventing and designing board games. He has had 6 games licensed with Fisher Price, Spin Master, Winning Moves, MGA, IDW, and Think Fun.
Drawing and painting has always been a part of who I am and I love to share it with people.
