Saving lives with great illustrations since 2002

Saving lives with great illustrations since 2002


A direct descendent of Dr Samuel Mudd (the guy who fixed John Wilkes Booth’s broken leg) Chris Lyons is an Illustrator, educator, swimmer, and pass-first point guard. And hopelessly addicted to all of 'em.  

His work has appeared with some regularity in the CA Illustration Annual, American Illustration, The Society of Illustrators LA, 3x3 Pro Illustration and Creative Quarterly. He even won a Gold ADDY this year. Chris is also an Adjunct Faculty member in the School of Graphic Design and the School of Industrial Design at RIT, in Rochester, NY.
