Tim Granda is an animator out of Michigan, who also runs Doom Cycle, an on-line magazine that covers the raddest artists in the chopper scene. He’s a regular contributor to Show Class Magazine, and worked for, recorded, and performed at the legendary NYC club CBGB’s.
As a kid, Granda used to pedal his BMX bike to the local 7-11 to buy the latest issue of Heavy Metal Magazine. Inside he discovered the works of Moebius, Druillet, Caza, and Corben, and his mind has been terminally warped ever since.
His passion for animation began at an early age when he discovered the film Yellow Submarine, and before long he was making stop-motion animated films with his parents Super-8 camera. He cites the work of René Laloux (Fantastic Planet, Gandahar) and Ralph Bakshi (American Pop, Fire and Ice) among his biggest influences.
Born and raised in Wendell, North Carolina, artist Gorgeous George has gone on to produce some of the most recognizable images in the chopper scene today. He produced the very first cover for Show Class Magazine, and has teamed up with the likes of Death Science, Doom Cycle, Loser Machine, Old School Helmets, and countless others to create works of art for a wide range of stuff that’s cool. When he’s not drawing or painting, GG can often be found skating, shooting, fishing, or tearing it up on his XL.
