Now I've Seen Everything
Check out this fairytale compilation of surreal paintings created by Greg "Craola" Simkins.


He was born in 1975 in Torrance California, just south of Los Angeles. Greg began drawing at the age of three and was inspired by different cartoons and books. Some books still find their way into his art. These include Watership Down by Richard Adams, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis and The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster.

At the age of 18 Greg Simkins started doing graffiti under the name “CRAOLA”. This kind of art gave him the confidence to paint large works. It also taught him perspective and color theory and developed his skills as well. This experience later helped develop his work with acrylics.

After graduation in Studio Art from California State University of Long Beach in 1999, Greg Simkins worked as an illustrator for different clothing companies and bands. Then he moved on to Treyarch/Activision where he worked on video games including Tony Hawk 2X, Spiderman 2 and Ultimate Spiderman.

In 2005, Simkins decided to paint as a full-time artist. Since then, he has been featured in various group exhibitions and had successfully sold-out solo exhibitions. His popularity started growing and his work gained recognition, and can now be found in the collections of Nick Cassavetes, Robin Williams, Everlast, Mark Parker (CEO of Nike), Jason Biggs & Jenny Biggs-Mollen, Stefan Lessard (bassist for the Dave Matthews Band), Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson & Josh Duhamel, Joseph "Joe" Hahn (DJ for Linkin Park), Mike Shinoda (rapper, musician for Linkin Park and Fort Minor), Mark Hoppus (musician, record producer and television host), Joel Madden (lead singer of Good Charlotte), and many more.

His art can be found in different areas, from the clothing industry to video games and toys. Greg has worked with such famous companies as Disney, Mattel, Logitech, Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder, Blink 182, Linkin Park, Upper Playground, Juxtapoz, To Die For Clothing, Clandestine, Vans, Converse, AFI, Saosin, Gym Class Heroes, Pennywise, Ningyoushi, Kid Robot, Zero Friends, Epitaph, Dark Horse, Iron Fist and Pulse International.

In 2009, Simkins founded his own brand “IMSCARED”, a brand of clothing, merchandise and accessories to further expand his art into more everyday mediums that can be worn and enjoyed by his diverse fan base. Simkins’ artwork has appeared in museums and galleries throughout the world. Watch this fairytale video that will definitely amaze you!
