Hi, my name is Dale Vande Griend and I'm an illustrator
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.
Drawing helps remind me of the wonder
I see in this world everyday. I want to keep that wonder
for this world, and I want to inspire others to do the same. 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.
- Interested in unique coloring books? Check all these hand-drawn coloring books HERE.
- Think mushrooms are crazy yet beautiful? I hand-drew, inked, and watercolored a coffee table book filled with all sorts of crazy looking and amazingly named mushrooms. See it HERE.
