Just over a decade since the release of his first book, 'Monster Museum', Grimly's illustrations can now be appreciated in over twenty best selling books including his New York Times bestselling collaboration wth author Neil Gaiman, 'The Dangerous Alphabet'. Grimly's own stories have been realised in his 'Little Jordan Ray's Muddy Spud' and 'Wicked Nursery Rhymes' series. Gris Grimly has been paired with such classic authors as Carlo Colodi on 'Pinocchio', Washington Irving on 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow', Edgar Allen Poe on 'Tales of Mystery and Madness' and 'Tales of Death and Dementia' and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley on 'Frankenstein'.
Grimly's work has appeared in the leading arts journal, 'Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art'. He has been honoured twice by the Society of Illustrators and has been included in the Society's 2004 and 2005 exhibits on The Fine Art of Children's Book Illustration. His artwork has been recognised and honoured by such prestigious institutions as The Edward Gorey House and The Edgar Allen Poe Museum. His works have been exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Andy Warhol Museum and several noteworthy galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo and many cities inbetween.
As a storyteller Gris Grimly delivers, without boundaries or apologies, a madhouse of imagination to those who seek to be taken into his world.
He is the one and only MAD CREATOR.
