Chris B. Murray is an artist/illustrator currently residing in upstate New York who makes imagery that can make you stop and stare. Inspired by US comic art, but with his own unique, gritty twist, Chris clearly possesses skill and imaginative vision. Every one of his pieces creates a sense of energy and movement. He shares his work technique below.
I work both traditionally & digitally. When creating gallery work its 100% traditional. My paintings are normally acrylic although I’d like to get back to using oils & watercolor.
When doing editorial work the piece is roughly 50% traditional 50% digital. I’ll render the drawing with ink, graphite & markers…some paint might be applied in the mix. From there I take it it into photoshop and finalize it digitally. I show the step by step process in the ‘News’ section on my site.
