About Chris Wilson

My goal is to draw everyday and share everything I learn along the way.

Based in San Diego, I've made it my horizon goal to draw wildlife everyday. Ever since I was young, I had an urge to draw animals and that feeling has never gone away.

My wildlife art is done with in an expressive, mixed media way. Using everything from pens and pencils to paint and markers. Often, the muses behind my drawings are dark jungles, secret beaches, flora, things with wings, and creatures that glow in the dark.

In 2009 I graduated with a BFA in Character Animation from the Disney founded CalArts. Ever since, I've made a living by selling my art, art licensing, working on commissions, and teaching artists to do the same.

Once per season, I make original drawings and limited edition prints available to collect.

Every week I share my sketchbook process, drawing videos, tutorials, and other creative behind-the-scenes with everyone subscribed to the Sketchbook Dispatches, my weekly newsletter.
