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.
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.
