Who is Grimdork?
Grimdork (aka Tabs) is a graphic designer, illustrator, music composer, and game developer. Throughout all of his teenage years, he was an artist who had a passion for creating dark/edgy art and punk rock music. Grimdork first got into graphic design when he signed up for a class in high school that taught him how to use Photoshop and other digital editing software. From there on out he was hooked.
After graduating from high school, Grimdork secured a minimum wage job in an ice cream parlor. But it wasn’t long until he realized that something was missing from his life. He needed to do something he enjoyed.
It was purely by accident that Grimdork came across the website Spreadshirt, and he soon discovered that he could showcase his art by digitally creating it and putting it on T-shirts and coffee mugs. From there, Grimdork started building up his portfolio and setting up his online store.
As time went on, Grimdork continued to hone his skills by creating more art and learning how to better use programs like Photoshop. Eventually, he expanded into other online stores such as Redbubble. Over the years, Grimdork continued to improve his skills and started learning other software such as Inkscape.
Sometime during his college career, Grimdork realized that he needed to start his own brand in order to become independently recognized as an artist. And it was only after graduating from college that he decided to create his own website in order to showcase his work.
Towards the end of college Grimdork was inspired by Daft Punk, Celldweller, Deadmua5, and S3RL to start making electronic music. Despite being a broke college student, he spent money on FL Studio and began making "video game style" music in his free time.
Finally after having experience in digital art and music, it was time for Grimdork to dive into a world he had only ever dreamed of joining, video game development. After being inspired by the video games "Undertale" and "Chook and Sosig", he decided it was time to get serious and bring this dream to life. He began learning how to use Gamemaker Studio and started crafting his first game "Timidna's Path".
