Chris Arran has created illustrations for a wide variety of clients for many years now. He studied illustration at Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK under the tutelage of legendary children’s book illustrator Tony Ross. After University, he moved to Munich, working exclusively in 3D for clients such as MTV, Swatch, and Cosmopolitan. Upon his return to the UK in 2002, he decided to get back to basics and started drawing again, re-launching his career using totally different media; since 2008, has been working with paint and collage. His current portfolio is a mix of acrylic paint and digital painting techniques, all inspired by pop art, sunny positive Californian color palettes, TV shows, and graphic design of the 1970/80′s.

Clients include: Penguin Books, Cosmopolitan, Elle, The Washington Post, Politico, Mixmag, JUPA, Arise.
