Howdy there! I'm Chris Austin and I'm a professional Artist and Illustrator from southern California. I've been drawing and making art ever since I found out it pissed off my teachers and made my friends laugh. Years of exposure to skateboard graphics and my dad's psychedelic posters have left me with a unique outlook on what art should be. I studied graphic design at Santa Barbara City College before I went on to graduate from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a focus on illustration. I love skateboarding, surfing, motorcycles, dogs and nature.
I'm always creating images for skateboards, album covers, magazines, comics, t-shirts, stickers, patches and pins, and I'm always looking for new ways to make art.
