Gris Grimly

Gris Grimly's art work is dark, whimsical, fun, cool and inspiring. His pen and ink line work in particular is stunning. If you like Edward Gorey, Tim Burton and Henry Sellick, you will love Grimly's illustrations. 
He both illustrated and wrote quite a few children's books over the past few years, among which many picture books. Be sure to check them out. Be warned though, they are not for the very young or the faint at heart.
Here are a few of my favorite Grimly illustrations. 

These are 3 of the 9 Freakatorium prints.
