Featured Illustrator: Chuck Grieb

Be careful what you say to your children. Watching Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts with his father, four-year-old Chuck Grieb asked how the skeletons came alive. His father’s answer (“They got skinny actors”) led the boy on a quest for the truth and a lifelong love for the fantastic and a career in the animation industry working for studios such as Disney and Nickelodeon as a story artist, animator, and teacher.

The Garden Clan is Chuck’s personal project; a world populated with tiny faeries riding hummingbirds and sinister goblins building steam-powered machines.

Chuck’s work has been featured in esteemed publications including Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, Imagine FX, Infected By Art, and Exposé. Chuck is represented by Tim Travaligni of Transatlantic Agency.
