My son is searching for stuff illustrated by someone named Ed Grimely? I think that's the spelling does anyone have any idea who he is? I would love to get him something of his but have hit a wall on this one?

All I've been able to find is that Ed Grimely is not an ilustrator, but a cartoon based on a Saturday Night Live character created by Martin Short in the 80s.  (Also spelled Ed Grimley.)  You can watch episodes on YouTube.

Thanx  for the response, i think he must have the name confused, I thought he said he illustrated an Edgar Allen Poe type thing? Guess I better dig further.

I think your son might be thinking of Gris Grimly. He illustrates children's books that are sort of creepy retellings of fairy tales.
