Illustrator, Storyteller, Adventure, Wonder

Hi, my name is Dale Vande Griend and I'm an illustrator and storyteller.
Several years ago, I wanted to find a way I could spark wonder and tell stories.

So, I started drawing.

With drawing, I'm able to create illustrations, graphic novels, picture books, and coloring books.
I want my art to broaden our understanding of the world, point to a greater good, and be accessible and fun.
My hope is that you enjoy some of my work and gain a little something from it.

Check out my 200 page graphic novel, DOLL. It's about a girl named Roopa, an Indian brothel, a doll, and it's a survival story.
Read it HERE.

Check out Keza Paints a Bright Future, the published children's book I illustrated with HOPE International. Click HERE.

I'm always interesting in talking with anyone or any organization who is looking to add illustration to a project. I'm open for commissions, children's books, graphic novels, or whatever your creative ideas are. Please don't hesitate to send an email my way! I look forward to hearing from you.
