A Message From the Artist

There aren't any new posts because my dad is being selfish and focusing on his own little show. I'm still cranking out the work, I'm just waiting for someone to put them on the computer for me. So for now, here is a picture of me threatening my papa if he doesn't put my drawings on the internet.

Granteeny will be back up and posting shortly. At the moment the artist is focused on personal matters.

And the Winner is....................

Here is how the winner was chosen. I called Grant at his studio and read all of your names to him. Actually, he ran from the phone so his mother read all of your names to him. He was then asked to select the name he would like to send a drawing, and he chose BEX! Everyone put in a valiant effort and their were some very persuasive arguments, but in the end it came down to the whim of a three year old. I should disclose that a couple of years ago, Rebecca gave Grant a Wiggles tooth brush and he still remembers it. This may have been a factor in his choice, but the official rules do not prohibit bribery (especially when it shows so much foresight). Please email me your address and your choice of artwork and your prize will be sent of post haste.Thank you for your participation in the 1st annual (or bimonthly, who knows?) Great GRanteeny Give Away.

Time Sensitive Material Enclosed

I will announce the winner of the Granteeny drawing at 4pm Pacific time today. So far as predicted, there are only 3 people in the running. If you would like a contemporary masterpiece by a child prodigy you need to comment in some way shape or form. I might chose the winner, Grant might chose the winner, or long suffering wife and mother, Michelle may chose the winner. Either way, I promise it will be fair yet completely arbitrary. 4:00!

Act Now, Our Operators are Standing By

Grant is tired of only seeing his work in museums or in private collections, so in an effort to get his work out into the real world where it can be appreciated on the walls (or fridges) of fine homes like yours, we hereby announce a contest. The winner will receive in the mail, an original Granteeny drawing or painting as yet to be determined. The only catch is, I can't really think of what the rules should be. Maybe the contest should be whoever comes up with the best contest parameters wins the contest. Or....maybe whoever gives the most compelling reason for needing to own a Granteeny. OK, it is basically open season. I will chose a winner based on undisclosed rules and reasoning. So, make up some rules, make up a reason, tell me where it would hang, if you comment in anyway you are in the running and then I will arbitrarily chose a winner (if the past number of comments is any indication that leaves about a pool of three possible winners). Maybe I will chose the best comment, the comment from the farthest point on the globe, the tallest commenter, the closest blood relative; the possibilities are really endless. How does that sound? I've just upped the ante, the winner gets to chose which piece they would like (unless I really, really love it and then I will say it is already in a private collection and is unavailable). Perfect! Game on. Oh, the winner will be chosen on Friday.

The young artist refuses to take a break from his work even at meal time.
