Who the heck am I, anyway?

I’ve leaned into my creative tendencies pretty much all my life.

As soon as I could grip a pencil, I was doodling and sketching and drawing. Not long after that, I was crafting stories to accompany those images. My earliest honest-to-goodness career aspiration was to be a comic book creator.

Years passed and those interests broadened. In college I earned degrees in commercial art and computer animation. Over the course of my career I’ve been an advertising designer, a graphic artist, a photojournalist and a video producer, among other things.

I’ve continued to lean into creative tendencies.

I’m able to draw on many of these skills and experiences in my current role as a content producer.

But in recent years, outside of my nine-to-five, I’ve returned to the comics and cartoons that first inspired me and continue to do so.

It’s my goal to make this website a hub for my original comics and illustrative works. I will curate select works from other areas of my career in the portfolio, as well, but overall I want this iteration of ChristopherArnoldDesigns.com to consist of pen and ink and word balloons.

I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for stopping by.
