So who the hell is Chris Wahl?



I'm glad you asked...

I was born in Murwillumbah, Australia in 1973.


I'm a self-taught artist who's always had a passion for drawing. Upon leaving high school (after a brief stint in retail) I began working at Walt Disney Television Animation as an Inbetweener. During my time there I published three issues of my own comicbook PLATINUM under my insignia X-Press Comics. This went on to win a few local awards including the prestigious 'Stanley' award in 1994.


Currently, I work at home as a freelance commercial artist through my representative The Drawing Book Studios. I've also contributed to many MAD magazines over the last decade with loads of interior work and about fourteen covers under my belt.


These days I live nestled between The Nepean River and The Blue Mountains with my wife, son and two dogs.

PICTURED: (1) Self Portrait from a recent Drawing Board Caricature thread. Pencil/Photoshop. 2006 (2) An unpublished cover from Aussie comic 'Cyberswine'. Pen. 1996. (3) One of my many MAD covers. Pencil, Painter and Photoshop. 2003
