Chris Mountain is a multidisciplinary artist and designer specializing in illustration, graphic design, apparel, woodworking and toy design. Currently living in Ashland, Oregon.
"I am an illustrator and designer living in Los Angeles California. I specialize in applied illustration, branding and online content. I also have experience in web design, social media marketing, photo and film editing, music composition, sound editing, apparel design and screen printing, as well as CNC router and laser equipment. I love collaboration in all forms, either as a member of a high functioning creative team or as a one man brand shop working with entrepreneurs to build strong identity, engaging online content and uniquely crafted physical media, including signage, display and packaging. Born and raised in the coastal mountains of northern California, I continue to draw inspiration from the redwood forests and wild coastlines I call my home. My extensive travels through Central America and Southern Africa have served to broaden my artistic perspective and ignite a strong passion for ethically responsible manufacturing. My fascination with the natural world, geometry and areas of theoretical physics are at the core of my esthetic. I see art as as a visual language for communicating the unexplainable, holding stock in the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words. Over the past few years I've been sharpening my teeth on projects for upcoming musicians, apparel brands and art galleries. I’ve studied illustration, design and marketing at both UCSD and Art Center School of Design, where I continue to strengthen and build new skillsets. My goal is to secure a challenging position with a growing brand that taps my unique experience."
