Martin began his career in Disney & Hanna Barbera Studios.[1] Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, he did promotional artwork for many television shows and video games.

In the Sonic the Hedgehog community, Greg Martin is known for creating the American and European illustrations used for box covers and advertising for the early Sonic the Hedgehog games. He had also done promotional artwork for many other Sega Genesis games as well.

It was not until early 2014 that it was revealed he had passed away on May 21, 2013, and then gained the attention as the artist of the Western promotional artworks for early Sonic games.[2][3]
