I’m Chris, a professional cartoonist based in the UK. I’ve been drawing since I was a kid, drawing stick people in my mums cookery books pre-school, then doodling my way through countless school books. It was at this point the penny dropped, I was getting paid in chocolate for utilising my skills to complete art homeworks for class mates.
Four years at art college was my next step before starting my own business in 1988.
As a professional cartoonist, I absorb inspiration throughout each day; conversations, people watching, food packaging, TV ads and more, all spring ideas to mind that I try to jot down. Life experiences are often called upon plus fresh intensive listening to a client’s brief for my commercial work.
I have a wealth of industry knowledge, providing print ready artwork in addition to handling the whole caboodle.
I started to follow Chris on TikTok and was instantly hooked. Having signed up for a number of classes, I have learnt there is so much more to cartooning than I took thought. Working with others in the groups, Chris encourages us to also learn from, and inspire from each others work. Also, a hidden benefit has been to my wellbeing, I can immerse myself for hours.
