Be careful what you say to your children. Watching Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonaughts 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 to a quest for the truth and a lifelong love for the fantastic.
Inspired by old stories, the world around him, and many artists who have come before Chuck Grieb enjoys creating fantastical imagery.
Currently a full time teacher, Chuck continues to create art and animation, pursuing his love for storytelling and the magic he felt when seeing Ray Harryhausen’s skeletons come alive. Most recently, Chuck has been exploring illustrative art, his work having been featured in esteemed publications including Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, Infected By Art, and Exposé.
