About


Hi I'm Chris Johnston I've worked on animated televisions shows, video games, comics and illustration for over 10 years. I've done concept art, designed assets and have story boarded on a variety of projects. My finished work is primarily done digitally in Photoshop, but I am comfortable with traditional mediums such as oil. Contact me by email (chrisbrucejohnston@gmail.com) or phone (778 240 6632), I'm always interested in creative projects. I currently live in Abbotsford, BC, Canada.
