Illustrator Research #43- Chris Sharp

Chris Sharp is a New York City based illustrator specializing in images for advertising, design, publishing and editorial clients. He works in several different styles including animation. His work is featured in American Illustration and Lurzer's Archive.

His clients have included American Express, Ann Taylor, Bloomberg, Businessweek, CIO, Coca Cola, Esquire, Fast Company, Forbes, GQ, Harper's, Ink Magazine, Kiplinger's Personal Finance, Newsweek, Norwegian Olympic Committee, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Reader's Digest, Shape, Time, United Nations, The Washington Post, West Surfing.

His working method varies in his pieces, and he tends to create collages and work with gouache and watercolor, occasionally with woodcuts.

I enjoy his graphic work along with his concepts. His visual metaphors emphasize simple ideas, yet they seem to do it in a simple, yet complicated way.
