Illustrator Gallery - Christopher Jennings
I’m CS Jennings. I’m an illustrator and author living in Austin, Texas. Creativity, design, storytelling, collaboration—these are the things that get me excited. I’m the Austin chapter Illustrator coordinator.I write and draw children’s books. I wrote the board book Hello, Texas! (Sterling Publishing). I am the author-illustrator of the picture book Animal Band (also Sterling Publishing). As an illustrator I’ve drawn chapter books for Penguin Group Books, a stack of books for Scholastic, and the Incredible Rockhead graphic novels for Stone Arch Books. I love collaborating with art directors and editors. (I especially enjoy the revision process of the book. Weird, I know.) Storytelling has always inhabited my drawing. As I write more, it finds its expression in words. I’m looking forward to where I’m going next.
I also draw lots of stuff.I do a ton of illustration for the children’s markets, but I go wherever my pencil will take me. Publishing, gaming, editorial, advertising, entertainment, commercial, apparel, apps, greeting cards—yep, I’ve pretty much done everything that has to do with drawing. (I was an animation lead for Richard Linklater’sA Scanner Darkly. That’s still one of my favorite things I’ve done.)
