Even between the Travers gig and book cover designs, Montgomery still finds time to nurture his personal artistry, drawing many scenes of sailing and travel both with pen and paper and watercolor.
"This year, I want to take my watercolors out again and start creating individual pieces of art. Almost everything I've created as a professional has been a multiple or editions so I'm going to force myself to do some singles that are one-and-only pieces," said Montgomery. "The computer is clean and lovely and efficient, but there isn't any feeling in the world like holding it in your hand."
His art is scattered around the region and the world, but Montgomery said he never ceases to feel honored by what he's been able to do.
"It's a privilege. I feel very lucky to have been in the right place at the right time, and it's a joy to do," said Montgomery.
All the Travers posters created by Montgomery are compiled in a book, "The History and Art of 25 Travers," which includes a photo and explanation of each poster. His work can be viewed at www.gregmontgomery.com.
