Hi, I’m Chris Wilson.
I’m a fine artist, illustrator, photographer, graphic designer, animator, and filmmaker. My work incorporates drawing, painting, photography, collage, digital art, and sculpture.
Everyday, I make work incorporating the things I’m curious about:
- exotic flora and fauna
- wildlife in jungles
- overgrown temples
- mysteries in the oceans
- things that have wings
- creatures that glow in the dark
… and any other fascinating discoveries nature can offer up.
In 2009 I earned a BFA in traditional animation from the Disney founded college, CalArts.
After spending a few years working on commercial projects in the commercial animation and motion graphics industry, I made the decision to put 100% of my focus on drawing wildlife.
Thanks to sharing my sketches on my newsletter on a regular basis, I’ve been able to grow an awesome business around my art. From selling my art online, working on commissions, licensing my art, and teaching others how to do the same.
My home base is San Diego, California where I live with my fiance Nalena, punk cat Misha, and my cafe racer motorcycle that sometimes works.
