About the Author

Greg Simkins was born in 1975 in Torrance California, just south of Los Angeles. He grew up with a menagerie of animals including a number of rabbits, which often emerge in his paintings. He began drawing at the early age of three and was inspired by various cartoons and books. Some standout books that still find their way into his art are Watership Down by Richard Adams, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis and The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. Simkins art continued to progress to the age of 18, when he started doing graffiti under the name CRAOLA . Graffiti art became his impetus for creating and gave him the confidence to paint large works. Simkins paintings have been featured in numerous group exhibitions and has had successfully sold out solo exhibitions. His art is seen in a wide variety of industries from clothing to video games and has also come to life in the form of toys. His client/collaboration list includes Disney, Mattel, Upper Playground, Juxtapoz, To Die For, Vans, Converse, AFI, Saosin, Gym Class Heroes, Pennywise, STRANGEco, Ningyoushi, Kid Robot, Zero Friends, Epitaph, Dark Horse, Iron Fist and Pulse International. It is his careful weaving of pop culture, the old masters, nature, carnival kitsch, and (most importantly) his warped imagination, that makes Greg Simkins a sought-after surrealist painter today. Simkins artwork currently appears in galleries throughout the world.

Format: Hardcover
I LOVED this book. and carry it with me almost always.
The Books hits the more graffiti style side of craola. all monochromatic (pencil, pen and ink) drawings, that range from 'simple' to extravagantly awesome!

I've always been a fan of craola's paintings, and hope that he will release a book on the process of his paintings rather than drawings.
but looking through this book gives me more of a window into his world, and for that i never will regret buying it. :)

I dont know if the amazon version comes with the stickers, because I bought my book on imscared.com
but hopefully it does because i love the stickers! way fun stuff :D

If you are a fan of the modern art scene that includes Lori Earley, Amy Sol, Audrey Kawasaki, etc... then you will love love LOVE this book.
Greg 'craola' simkins is a visionary of the modern edgy world. Definitely an artist you need to know of before you die.

300 pages of pure awesomeness.

An amazing book from Greg "Craola" Simkins. You will not be able to put this one down! The layout is fun and inventive and the work is incredible. Along with the drawings, this book gives you an authentic look into the artist's process of starting a painting. It's almost as if your hanging out in the studio with Greg Simkins himself while he brainstorms these ideas. A must have for any art enthusiast!

If you're in to graffiti, sketchbook art, or extreme detail, you'll love this book! It's chalk full of drawings and sketches and even comes with a page of stickers which was pretty cool. I love to draw and before I do, I usually look through other people's art to find inspiration and ideas here and there. Highly recommended!!

If you like abstract art, cartoons and graffiti, pick this up. Greg Simkins displays great works here. The book is actually pretty thick, filled fron cover to cover with neat illustrations.

Greg's art is amazing. You can purchase signed copies of this directly from Greg's website. The signatures are really cool too.
