Chris graduated from The University of Natal in 2002 where he studied Fine Art. Despite having never touched a computer he thought it viable to move to Johannesburg and try his hand at animation where he worked as a 2D animator for several years before deciding to focus on illustration as his main discipline.
Now that he has figured out how to use a computer he works mostly in Photoshop and Illustrator, scanning in pencil drawings and working with them digitally. He loves digital painting and how it works with the traditionally drawn image.
The diversity of work that illustration has offered is something that is something that he revels in and has consequently enjoyed doing storyboards and character designs for commercials, illustrations for books and album covers.
