About

chrisketchell-art.com showcases the work of Animation Director, Designer and Artist Chris Ketchell. 

Following an Illustration degree from Manchester and an MA in Animation from The Royal College of Art, I embarked on a successful career in the Animation industry. From the humble beginnings as an animator on Bob The Builder, to directing and designing large scale animated broadcast campaigns, I have  worked regularly with major advertising agencies and continue to challenge myself in this field today.

Alongside my commercial output, I've developed a body of personal work with an emphasis on a more craft based approach to work. The results of which can be found in this store today.

Often influenced by my own animated films, I draws inspiration from the music, film and tv of the 60's. I use vibrant colours and strong geometric shapes to forge a distinct and unique visual style, and attention to detail and a total obsession with quality of finish are key to my make up as an artist.
