This Creature was designed to be a version of the Grim Reaper but with the style of the Grave Digger monster truck. The skull has been elongated to mimic the narrow tapering hood of Grave Digger. The hood paint has been represented on the forehead and the red glowing eyes are symbolic of Grave Digger's menacing red headlights.
The Grim icon is now a permanent fixture on the design of the Grave Digger monster truck with it's spot on the roof.

Below is a comic story featuring Grim and the Grave Digger Monster Jam truck. The piece was originally created for a Monster Jam Souvenir Program but recently was updated to be a handout at a Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. I conceived the idea, wrote and illustrated the story. Much attention was paid to keeping the 'fantasy' element of the Grim Creature grounded in the reality and excitement of a live Monster Jam event.
