Grant is also an artist, whose work as an illustrator and an artist have featured him on numerous daily papers namely The New Yorker and Interview Magazine as well as in children’s books.

The 53-year-old multifaceted artist has managed to ‘bag’ some industry heavyweights under his belt – working with the likes of pop queen Madonna and the late great King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

A closer look at the artist’s website will reveal his knack for photography as well. To an untrained eye, his work as a photographer may illicit indifference, but a detail observation will reveal a depth and explosive composition.

As a storyboard artist, his catalog includes works on films such as Closer; Angels In America; Charlie Wilson's War; and many more. Besides illustration and photography, Grant has contributed by working as a graphic designer as well.

In his lovelife, he started dating actor Alan Cumming in the year 2005. After dating for almost two years, the gay couple tied the knots at the Royal Naval College in London. The guests attending the wedding described the ceremony as ‘straight off of a fairytale.’  

Previously, Grant's husband Alan was with his high-school sweetheart Hilary Lyon, whom he married after graduating. Their relationship lasted for eight years before parting ways. She has since then turned actress and is married with two kids.

Speaking on monogamy after the ceremony, the newly-wed Alan claimed that he didn't believe in a monogamous relationship. He said:

“I don’t believe monogamy is feasible.”
