Design and Illustration by Christopher


Resumé (PDF)
Designer, Illustrator and Writer with over 25 years experience in the art, design and entertainment industries. Immediately after high-school, I started working nights at an animation studio while taking college art classes during the day. At age 19, I started my own independent comic book company with my two best friends while learning layout and design on the job at a sports newspaper. Eventually leading to a full-time career in graphic design working with some of the world's top brands and clients.

Design:
I am experienced in design for both digital and print. Including art direction, design, illustration, copywriting and concepting for digital marketing campaigns, social media, site content, pitch decks, web design, motion storyboards and publication layout and design.

Illustration:
I cut my teeth in animation but my true love has always been comic books. I'm the writer, artist and creator of "The Ghouly Boys" comic books series. My illustration portfolio includes work for Disney's "Haunted Mansion" comics, Marvel sketch cards, artwork for the Bay to Breakers marathon and social media artwork for film campaigns.

Writing:
As a comic book creator, I wrote my own stories, including work on "The Ghouly Boys", "Haunted Mansion", "Tales of Hot Rod Horror" and more. Aside from writing for comic books, I've written film and television treatments for Benderspink, Film Colony, Nickelodeon, and others. I've also done copy writing for social campaigns, pitches and product packaging.

Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver), Clip Studio Pro, HTML, CSS and several Web Content Management Systems.
