Elliot Smith portrait by Michael Grills for BEATROUTE MAGAZINE

Elliot-Smith

I did this Cover for BEATROUTE Magazine last Month. Elliot Smith was a depressed and addicted songwriter who killed himself by stabbing himself with a knife.

Michael Grills

Michael Grills Illustration was established in 2005.

Since then I have been collaborating with art directors just like you.

I promise you’ll get more than what you expect from an illustrator. I pride myself on understanding your needs, honouring my commitments, and providing the best quality; all under a strict deadline with absolutely no surprises.

I combine the traditional craftsmanship of engaging compositions, color theory, and layout in a new digital form that uses vector shapes to create exciting portraits of celebrities, politicians, and business people.

I am a lifelong learner and pride myself on adaptability in any project circumstance. You’re kept in the loop no matter what is happening so that rest assured, your weekend won’t be spent worrying about Monday.

I love art and business so if you ever want to talk shop, need me to propose on a project, or just want to subscribe to my updates then please contact me.

I work from my studio in Calgary Alberta and live with my wife, two children, a fish and a gecko.
