Edgar Rice Burroughs Art
The Colourful Ape Man
Tom Grindberg, Illustrator

Tom lives with his wife Mari and daughter Katie in Brooklyn, New York. His art career began at the age of eighteen when he was still living in the Washington suburb of Chevy Chase.

Tomís first published work was illustrating political cartoons. This early success fired his desire to further pursue the field of art and publishing. As luck would have it, it wasnít too long before he landed his first freelance work with both Marvel and DC Comics in 1981. During this time, he also worked in advertising alongside some of the industryís best illustrators and graphic artists.

After leaving advertising, Tom devoted his full attention to the craft of storytelling and comic book publishing. Tomís credits are varied and numerous. His DC work includes Action Comics, Batman, Detective Comics, Flash, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Superman, Superboy, Supergirl, Secret Origins, and Teen Titans. His Marvel Comics work includes the Avengers, Daredevil, Marvel Team-Up, Punisher, Savage Sword of Conan, Silver Surfer, Spider-Man, Thor, and X-Factor. His cover work includes Judge Dredd and other popular British titles, plus covers for classic pulp fiction characters such as Airboy and Phantom Detective, and numerous painted covers for both Marvel and DC Comics.

Tomís work for Newsday, a Long Island, New York newspaper, earned a graphic design award from the Associated Press. Tom has also done extensive behind-the-scene character design and licensing for Marvel, DC Comics, and independent publishers. Further credits include computer game design, commercial interior designing for leading manufacturing companies, and even motion film work. 

Currently, Tom is illustrating the New Adventures of Tarzan, co-created with Roy Thomas and Jim Sullos, for Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc.ís online comic site.
