Hi! I’m Chris Rathbone - a freelance illustrator with a background in Graphic Design and Art Direction. I love the challenge of trying to capture the emotion, speed and energy from the world of sport, and experimenting with colour to further enhance the visual impact of my work.
I have created illustrations for a host of agencies and clients within the sports industry, including Formula 1, Formula E, W Series, the Grand National, the Tour De France, the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Sky Sports, Ferrari, RedBull and Mahindra Racing. I have also created illustrations for leading magazines such as Top Gear, CAR Magazine, Match of the Day and Imagine FX. In addition, I have been commissioned by a U.S. publishing house to illustrate a series of sports related books.
