Be careful what you say to your children. Watching Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts with his father, four year old Chuck Grieb asked how the skeletons “came alive”. His father’s answer, “They got skinny actors” led the boy to a quest for the truth and a lifelong love for the fantastic.

The pursuit of his love for storytelling and the magic he felt when seeing Ray Harryhausen’s skeletons come alive led Chuck Grieb to become an illustrator, animator, and teacher.

Inspired by the wildlife in his backyard, stories of King Arthur, and the old (and new) faerie tales he has always loved, Chuck created the Garden Clan.
