Studio Team

CHRIS SOMMERVILLE

Chris is the Studio Head, establishing the business in 1999 backed by a team of artists who have remained with him ever since.  Chris’ idea was to make the talents of cartoonists available to clients in the public and private sectors in a new way, pooling talent and resources to become more visible and offer a variety of art styles.  As well as working collaboratively with the other Studio artists Chris has developed his own strand of self-published caricature books.

Like all his colleagues Chris is an adept caricaturist producing both quick-fire drawings as live entertainment and fully rendered pieces for presentation and exhibition.  He also specialises in: character design; digital images; caricatures of sporting figures.
