We have some new team members here at Letterfest HQ!!!
We thought it was about time we started to introduce them….
MEET CHRIS – Illustrator
Chris has now been here a couple of months, he started just before Christmas helping us out at our busiest time of year. (what a life saver)! We are so happy to now have him as a permanent illustrator at Letterfest.
He also was joint winner in ‘The Great British Letterfest office Christmas Bake off!’ (yes it was a real thing, read our previous blog…)
He has been working on his own drawings for many years so he really has perfected his talent over time. Chris has his own website and blog so you should definitely head over to take a look at some of his awesome work! (see some examples below) https://www.artofchrislock.co.uk/
Chris has been helping to draw everything here, from wedding venue portraits to favourite place Illustrations to our bespoke pet portraits.
We are pleased to let you know he will also be the super talent behind our new people portraits. So watch this space for more on that……
