Grabiel or “Grabe” is an artist at Human Head Studios who takes his nerf gun fights very seriously. He has 9 years of experience at the studio, but his passion for art began as a teenager when his love of comic books inspired him to draw. After attending Madison Area Technical College for Animation, the process of working on a creative team made him want to work at a gaming studio. Grabe has an extensive gaming history and has played every console imaginable, but his favorite games are fighting and skill-based games. His favorite thing about working at Human Head is being inspired by the strong work ethic of his coworkers. When he’s not drawing or providing the studio with rotisserie chickens for “family dinners,” Grabe enjoys boxing, working out, spending time with family, and motivating others to be the best they can be.
