In 2008, Graham was presented with the Manuel Barkan Memorial Award in art education by the NAEA. In 2010, he was selected as the Utah Art Education Association Higher Educator of the Year, and as the Zion National Park Artist-in-Residence for April 2010.
In 2014, Graham initiated the Ultra Violet project funded by the Laycock Center with fellow professors Heather B. Jensen and Eric Gillett. The project included many students and faculty of various departments at BYU, and produced several collaborative projects with the artist Ultra Violet (Isabelle Collin-Dufresne). The end of the project came with the showing of "Ultra Violet: The Studio Recreated, April 24-May 24," an exhibition which transported all the contents of her art studio inside Dillon Gallery in New York, including animations the artist had created with BYU students.
Graham was a speaker at the April 2015 Convocation for the College of Fine Arts and Communications. He is represented in national and international exhibitions including the Society of Illustrators annual exhibitions and the Bologna International Children’s Book Illustrators Exhibition.
He is married to Catherine Graham and has three children.
