Menagerie Art of Christian McGrath
Illustrator Christian McGrath has created the covers for
all of the Menagerie books, thus far. He was born in the Bronx
in 1972 and became interested in art and illustration as a
small child. In his youth, he was initially interested in
comic books, but when he discovered the work of Frank Frazetta,
he knew he wanted to be a book cover artist.
McGrath received his degree from The School of Visual Arts
in 1995, and spent time teaching guitar. In 2000, he started
doing illustration professionally, and considers himself lucky
to create art as his "real" job.
