Christopher Thornock

Christopher Thornock is an illustrator, artist, and educator who grew up in the western states of the US. He received his BFA and MFA in illustration and fine art. Living with his family, two cats, and his dog pal Archie, his nose is always in his sketchbook. Drawing is a passion and his work reflects his interest in traditional materials, even when he works digitally.

“I am open to various projects from picture books to covers. Especially if they are of a timeless nature with texture, atmosphere, warmth, subtle humor or mystery.”

Chris is finishing illustrations for the new picture book, Brave Old Blue, written by Colleen Muske and published by Sleeping Bear Press. Publication is set for Spring 2025.
