31 October Portraits

In the beginning of October, I announced an ambitious project I titled 31 October Portraits. The concept was to produce one watercolor study/exercise every day in October featuring a horror icon. Each piece would be an exploration in painting technic and realistic lighting. These exercises are important to me because I make a living as […]

OVER THE GARDEN WALL 2017 SPECIAL

In April 2017, while hovering around my booth at Monsterpalooza, I was approached by a couple editors from Kaboom! comics. They asked me if I would be interested in contributing to an Over the Garden Wall comic book special. I was most likely reserved in my reply but on the inside I was elated. I’m […]

CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF REDNECK GHOULS

In July of 2007, I released my short film Cannibal Flesh Riot! as a collector’s edition DVD with an accompanying CD of music inspired by the film. Ten years later, this creature feature is still enjoyed by fans who snagged up a copy. I look back at this film with fond memories. A group of […]

SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES…

I am delighted to announce that an excitingly wicked time draws near. The release of Wicked Nursery Rhymes III, along with reprints of Wicked Nursery Rhymes I and Wicked Nursery Rhymes II, is scheduled for this Spring (March/April). It has been many harvest moons since both WNR1 and WNR2 have gone out of print and WNR3 was originally […]

MERRY GRISMAS

I set up this website to be easily updated so I could produce a weekly newsletter showcasing events, work-in-progress, future releases and lifestyle insights. While the website is seamless as a platform for this activity, my life’s priorities are not. Although my family will always take precedence, I would like to find a healthy balance where […]

TALES FROM THE BROTHERS GRIMM BOOK LAUNCH RECAP

Saturday, July 30th, was an amazing night at Creature Features, as we launched my new book, Gris Grimly’s Tales From The Brothers Grimm. On display were thirty framed original watercolor paintings from the book in the gallery space of the store. But to get there, you had to pass through a small room that was designed and decorated […]
