I am an illustrator living in New England. I post daily drawings here Monday-Friday. For more information, including selected clients, awards, and shows, check out my bio. I've got prints etc for sale online here and here. Check 'em out and buy tons of stuff!
While campaigning in New Hampshire last week, New Gingrich stated, “I’m not rich.” I’m not sure what he considers rich, but I’d certainly say he qualifies:
• Net worth = $6.7 million
• Income for 2010 = $2.7 million
• Charges $60,000 per speech
• Tiffany’s tab = $500,000
Newt Gingrich has been a jackass for a long time. I was reading through some amazing quotes of his earlier—which is how I found the one in this drawing: “I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.”
Here are some other gems:
“The problem isn’t too little money in political campaigns, but not enough.”
“Gingrich – Primary mission, Advocate of civilization, Definer of civilization, Teacher of the rules of civilization, Leader of the civilizing forces.”
“The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument.”
“It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”
“She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.” —talking about his first wife after divorcing her.
After starting his career as a graphic designer at award-winning studios in New England, Chris accidentally became an illustrator. He’s pretty happy about that. This strange transformation was a result of his daily drawing project that he started in late 2007, in fact he’s still posting a new drawing every day.
Chris holds degrees in Visual Communication Design and Art History from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford, where he is currently pursuing his Masters Degree in Illustration. He has been the recipient of Gold Awards, Silver Awards, Excellence Awards, Judge’s Awards and the Spirit of Creativity Award from the Connecticut Art Director’s Club as well as BoNE awards from the AIGA and a Silver Award from Gaphis. In addition his work has been published in numerous books and publications including Print Magazine and Communication Arts. His client list includes; Converse, Nike, Chronicle Publishing, Boston Magazine, McDonalds, Scholastic, Harvard Business School Publishing, Warner Music Group, Republic Records.
