Wicked Nursery Rhymes

GRISGRIMLYSWICKEDNURSERYRHYMES-2TArtist and storyteller Gris Grimly has explored the dark side of nursery rhymes through his books, Wicked Nursery Rhymes and Wicked Nursery Rhymes II.  He’s also a filmmaker, who debuted a trailer to his short film, Wounded Embark of the Lovesick Mind, at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego.   Grimly’s books are published by Baby Tattoo, which was established six years ago by a pair of art collectors who had no practical book manufacturing or sales experience, but who loved Grimly’s Wicked Nursery Rhymes characters.   Baby Tattoo publishes books for adults and kids, including limited edition books, as well as painterly projects and photographic collections. 

Baby Tattoo is also a sponsor of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, a cabaret-meets-art-school-happening, founded by Molly Crabapple,  that currently takes place in 80 cities, and counting, around the world.   To visit Dr. Sketchy, click here, but be warned that the site occasionally provides evidence that its models are mammals.
