Hi! My name's Chris. I've lived in Los Angeles since 1995, when I came out here for grad school. I 'm originally from the north side of Columbus, OH.

I'm a creative writer and artist and have shown my work in galleries in Los Angeles. Check out my art here.

I've also written a graphic novel! You can check out some sample pages here.

I like graphic novels, Christmas, tide pools, grilled cheese sandwiches, reading, biker moustaches, dudes, football (Ohio State and the New Orleans Saints), sea monsters, painting, pine trees, bookstores, tennis, going to the gym, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cricket Magazine, gloves with the fingers torn off, illustration, rugby players, Trina Schart Hyman, Stephen King, horror films, Hillary Clinton, film history and unexplained phenomena.

I blog about illustration, painting, Atari, films, Christmas, books...and things from my favorite era: the late 1970s/early 80s. As well as assorted other stuff!

Habilitat's 14th annual luau, auction & concert

If you’re in Hawaii on Saturday, come to Habilitat’s annual auction and luau! I have five surfer paintings available for purchase, and all proceeds go to this esteemed rehabilitation facility.

I’m proud to have a painting in this show at the end of the month - with proceeds benefiting a very worthy cause!

I went to a really great opening yesterday - at Richard Heller Gallery in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica — of collaborations between Canadian artists Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber. The pieces were so funny and endearing.
These images give you a taste of what their work is like. Check out www.richardhellergallery.com for more info.
