Chris Rathbone Illustration

I’m Chris Rathbone - a freelance illustrator with a background in Graphic Design and Art Direction, and I am a member of the Association of Illustrators. All my illustrations are 100% vector - meaning they can be scaled to any size with no pixelation or loss of quality. My illustrations are also layered so the elements can be separated and moved around which is ideal for animation.

I am a member of the Association of Illustrators, and I work predominantly within the sports and automotive industries, and I have created illustrations and animations for a host of clients and agencies within the sports industry, including Formula 1, the NBA, the NHL, ATP, NASCAR, Red Bull, Puma, the Boston Celtics, the Miami Dolphins, Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid, Formula E, Sky Sports, the Tour De France and the Goodwood Festival of Speed. I have also created illustrations for leading magazines such as CAR Magazine, Top Gear, Forbes Magazine and Match of the Day, and I have been commissioned by a U.S. publishing house to illustrate a series of sports related books.

I have also been a part of several live drawing sessions for clients such the NBA, and Motorsport Live where I have created illustrations live on stage whilst talking through my work and answering questions from the crowd.

In addition to my project work, I have created time-lapse and tutorial videos where you can learn more about my illustration process on my courses page.
