Hi, I’m Chris Wilson.

Based in San Diego, I spend my days drawing, animating, and exploring this world of ours.

Drawing is the root of everything I make. Resulting in illustrations and animations with a handmade look – thoughtful lines and washy colors.

Everyday I’m inspired by travel, jungles, forests, oceans, surfing, things that have wings, and creatures that glow in the dark.

In 2009 I graduated with a BFA in Character Animation from the Disney founded college, CalArts. Since then I’ve had a blast growing my studio. From working on illustration commissions, animation projects, teaching other creatives, and selling my drawings to collectors around the world.

You can contact me for commissions or just to say hi.

Join my personal email list and get a new email from me every Sunday morning.

Once a week I share a behind the scenes of what I’m drawing and actionable insights with 12,000+ creatives around the world.
