chris howker, character design, illustraton, illustrator, designer, manchester

I have worked on 2 seasons (52 episodes) of an animated pre-school show, several Children’s educational activity books, logo and mascot development, large scale murals as well as

volunteering my time and skills to live painting events and charity artwork auctions in Manchester.

I love working with character design, sketching ideas and experimentation no matter the scale

of the project. Raised on cartoons in the early 90’s, I aspire to keep that same energy, humour and personality in my work.


I have a fantastic working knowledge of Photoshop, which I have developed over the last 10 years,

and Illustrator which I’ve been using for over 9 years with my Cintiq tablet by my side. 

Previously I have worked with:

CHF Entertainment Ltd
Dorling Kindersley Publishing

Manchester City FC
the National Football Museum
Swizzels Matlow
Fred Aldous
Outhouse Project MCR
Projekts Skate Park
