Chris Turnham
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Chris Turnham is an illustrator currently based in Los Angeles. He’s had a long production art career working as a visual development artist in the animation industry for clients including Sony Pictures Animation, LAIKA Entertainment, and Cartoon Network. His art style reflects his love of mid-century illustration and he grabs inspiration from history, architecture, and the exotic world we live in. Currently he works as an illustrator for editorial and children’s books and spends much of his time in the studio pursuing his passion for screenprinting. “The Coffee Plant” is a collaboration between myself and my good friends at Milstead & Co., a coffee shop based in Seattle, Washington. I wanted my rendering of the plant to reflect their refined approach to the art of coffee.
