Hey everyone! It’s RickSantorum time again! Over the weekend, Ricky said, “CO2 is a pollutant? Tell that to the plants.” I can’t even make this stuff up. Yes, plants use a small amount of carbon—not the 90 million tons of carbon emissions we’re putting into the air daily that is directly causing global warming. Plants release water from small pores in their leaves allowing them to cool their surroundings. If there is too much carbon dioxide the pores constrict and as a result less water can be released causing the plant to lose it’s cooling power. But, that’s science and Santorum doesn’t believe in that.
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.
