Hi, I’m Chris Jones

photo-chris-2013
I’m an illustrator from Toronto, Canada. My illustration style is fun, cartoony, and colourful.

I enjoy exploring humour and expressiveness in my work, and telling stories visually is what really gets me excited.

I was raised on comic books, red licorice, and Saturday morning cartoons, and I’ve been drawing with a passion ever since I could hold a crayon!

In my spare moments, when I’m not spending time with my wonderful family, I am usually working on a book or comic project. I’m currently working on a new kids graphic novel Zoe Sparks: Stuffie Rescue Squad.

I’m a Graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, and a member of:
the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and the Picture Book Artists Association.
