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!
Today’s daily drawing is a haiku by John Maeda, “All I want to be is, someone that makes, new things and, thinks about them.” I first read this in a really great piece by Clifton Burt. I really liked the quote so I decided to do my own interpretation of it.
My friend Clarence recently shared a Muhammad Ali tribute video with me. I’m a big fan of Ali and this video is great. One of the things I love about this edit is the inclusion of Ali’s quotes. I immediately thought that these would make a fun series of illustrations (like my Major Taylor series). This is the beginning.
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.
