Today’s artist feature focuses on a dear friend of Gup Gups’ and one of the friendliest giants you could ever meet. We at Gup Gups are very appreciative that Chris chose to apply his substantial talent to making beauty instead of applying his substantial size to crushing hobbits.

Chris Chanaud

Chris is genius and madness barely contained in a 6’4” frame. In truth, and fortunately for us, that immense frame does not hold much of that genius and madness in. Bubbling over with creativity Chris’ brilliance finds its way into illustration, fine art, and what seems like every major motion picture’s poster campaign.

Originally from Southern California, Chris stayed local and graduated in illustration from the internationally recognized Art Center College of Design, Pasadena. A classically trained painter in traditional media, Chris now spends most of his professional life carving light in front of his shiny Mac. We at Gup Gups are excited to bring Chris’ imagination into tactile thee dimensions.
