About

Hi, I’m Chris Wilson.

Everyday, I use my sketchbook as an excuse draw all the things I’m curious about:

  • exotic flora and fauna
  • insects in jungles
  • overgrown temples
  • ocean life
  • things that have wings
  • creatures that glow in the dark

… and any other mysterious things nature can offer up.

In 2009 I graduated from the Character Animation program at the Disney founded college, Calarts. After spending a few years working on commercial projects in the animation industry, I set out on my own.

Starting and growing a fine art and illustration business based around my sketchbook drawings.

Thanks to sharing my sketchbook adventures 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.

Travel is a huge part of my art. I make a point of going on a few international adventures every year. When I’m not traveling my home base is San Diego, California where I live with my fiance Nalena, punk cat Misha, and my motorcycle that sometimes works.
