He doesn't get much love around here but his work is incredible.

My tastes have changed quite a bit since I started collecting 5-6 years ago but Craola's work never gets old to me. Strange that nobody really cares about his stuff on this forum.

Same here but I always will be drawn to his work and don't see myself ever getting tired of it. I do think he has a decent amount of people who at least appeciate his work on here. The problem is not enough of his work is flippable for the majority of eb to get a second look sadly.

I'll definitely be attending the show. I just recently had "Gather Around" framed-up and I'll be stopping by to grab it after the show.

Sick frame job on that coughdrop! Gather Around is one of my favorites of his for sure.

Is there anyone better at what he does than Craola? When I say this I'm talking in terms of an artist who does character/narrative based illustrations. I know there are plenty of other folks who are great but can anyone else really touch him? He seems to be crushing at the highest of levels both from an imaginative and technical standpoint. Which other artists would at least be in the conversation?

I got this baby up for sale. Normally I would not post in this thread with a piece for sale but this is the thing. I put it up at No Reserve and it cost more then 15k. So I feel given this is a great opportunity for a fan to get one of his masterpieces for a lot less then the galleries charge. This is the piece and its huge!

Here is the last of my Greg Simkins paintings I will ever sell. This is the biggest and best one yet. Starting off at no reserve so this is going home with someone! It is called Stuck Outside and is huge!

Auction can be seen here...

Just recently saw Craola's stuff for the first time. I like it a lot. I'm glad this thread exists.

Some new timelapse videos from Greg. Seems one of them is showing a new Bronze(?) statue that I would guess is debuting at SDCC

New painting he did for Crime on Canvas coming up in Las Vegas called "Bags and Friends"

He is also wanting feedback to which painting people would like to see turned into a print. You can email here contact@imscared.com to pick.
I picked Apex Predator and all of the work can be viewed here for the available choices...
