Drawing has been an integral part of my life since I was a child and remains to be a cornerstone of my life to this day. I get a kick out of being a visual problem solver and in bringing others joy through my artwork.
What role do you think your business plays in supporting a more creative community?
Grimdrops helps businesses get customer's attention with eye catching and thought provoking imagery.
What was the last book you read?
The book I'm currently reading that's having an enormous impact on me is "Can't hurt me" by David Goggins.
What’s the one thing people would be surprised to learn about you our your business?
My pseudonym Grimdrops comes from my nickname "Grim" because of my last name, Grimaldi. I've always been a hip hop fan and each time one of my favorite artists would release a new track or album, it would be referred to as being "dropped." All new artwork created by me, are in turn, Grimdrops.
