About

Hello, I’m Chris Wharton. I'm an illustrator and letterer based in London UK. I like to think that my work is a light hearted romp through the human condition. I work out of my bijou home studio under the careful scrutiny of my two cats (Molly & Percy). When I'm not working with clients I'm almost certainly working on my own projects producing limited edition type pieces and illustrated oddities. I'm also repeatedly informed I look like Don Draper, hence the photo.

If you'd like to discuss a project feel free to get in touch via: me@chriswharton.com
