Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins

Craola 1

“Greg ‘Craola‘ Simkins did what any responsible adult should do: he gave his two-months notice, left his health care-providing, consistently paying job as a video game illustrator, and became a full-time fine artist. The kind in Craola appears to emerge once his brush hits the canvas, his work channelling everything from The Phantom Tollbooth and Dr Seuss to Disneyland and the monstas underneath the bed. If you’re lucky, Craola may philosophize with you about the wise old tale of the pirate hook and a sharkskin canvas. His inspiration–in every way–is large.” – Benjamin Belsky, Juxapoz Magazine

The more I see of Craola‘s work, the more I find myself liking it. His pieces seem to have a bit of a child nightmarish quality. One of my new favorite artists.

More artwork after the jump.
