Born in Pennsylvania in 1972, GrumpyDog has been drawing and painting since he was knee-high to a grasshopper. Although much of his youth was preoccupied with providing his services as child labor to the family run business, it has been rumored that occasionally he could be found in a dark corner drawing obsessively on found bits of paper. At age eighteen he attended The Art Institute of Pittsburgh where upon graduating with a clear understanding of what it was to be a slave to art, he promptly high tailed it to Arizona only to become one heck of a follicle engineer. GrumpyDog continues to reside in Arizona where he has shacked up with his girlfriend, a few cats, and his Border Collie mix whom he refers to lovingly as “Grumpy Dog”. Oh, and after years of therapy for the damage art school caused, he has once again returned to the world of graphic design… well at least part-time… making these totally rockin’ tees, art, & photography.
