My comics are made in my limited spare time- squeezed in before daybreak and on weekends while my children nap.
A few of my comics have appeared in the Eisner nominated Abstract Comics: The Anthology edited by Andrei Molotiu (Fantagraphics, 2009).
I managed to make my Masters Thesis into a comic book and it will be published this summer in Visual Arts Research Volume 38 Number 1 (University of Illinois Press).
I also enjoy making mini-comics, which can be purchased here. (I also trade with other artists, so email me grantthomasonline AT gmail DOT com if you are interested.)
My Life in Records:
Stories about a lifelong obsession with music.
You can currently read the Prologue for free online.
"One of the things instantly recognizable about My Life In Records is that it captures, in visual language, the magical crackle and pop of a vinyl record being played. There are also some early snippets of song lyrics, those types of generational songs that define us. So, for all those people who say that music doesn’t work well in comics, this one proves them wrong. Thomas displays the lively colorful reds of guitar strings humming, and builds a tale about childhood memories, music, art, and pop culture like Sesame Street being the ephemeral soundtrack to a person’s life."

"It’s always a little tricky to pull off music in comics, but I think Grant nailed it here." Optical Sloth
