Tiptoe through the tulips with us as we discover Gary Grayson’s vibrantly detailed world in this cover design. Grayson’s distinctive style is an eclectic mix of vintage vector, impressionism and pop art – all combined in rich layers. May his boundless creativity so inspire your own imagination.
Drawing inspiration from the modern world, Texan artist Gary Grayson uses a mix of pop art, vintage vector, impressionism and portraiture to create striking images of anything from beloved pets to legendary music icons.
A lifelong artist and collector of antique books and prints, Grayson has worked for over 35 years in advertising and graphic design. A fan of contemporary literature as well as art, it’s easy to see Grayson’s modern and playful influences in this cover design.
Inspired by a diverse artist’s palette, Grayson employs an array of multidisciplinary art and techniques. As we see in the piece reproduced here, Grayson blends his contemporary influences with those from nature, creating a truly magical manifestation of a garden scene that wholly captures our imaginations.
With a busy forefront of flowers and wildlife, this colourful Butterfly Garden design is brought together by wistful butterflies and striking roses growing through the multifaceted display. Pops of vibrant colour showcase the masterful eye of Grayson’s view of the natural world revealed in this playful and enigmatic nature montage.
