Self portraitI’m Chris Thompson, a former Cancer Biologist turned Illustrator & Graphic Designer. I believe strongly that design should tell a story and stir a desire for change. In all my years as a scientist I never turned my back on my other passions, namely illustration & design, letting my curiosity with the world, my technical background & my acute powers of observation influence my creativity. I started drawing as a child and haven’t stopped since. I’m based in Portland, Oregon and do freelance design and illustration projects worldwide, but I also run the Art Department at a magazine called Across the Margin. Until recently, I called Brooklyn, New York City my home.

I’d love to find my next project! I’m available for freelance work, collaborations and to respond to any questions or comments you may have. If you are interested in purchasing prints of any of my work, let’s talk!
