ILLUSTRATOR & SEQUENTIAL ARTIST
Chris Liu uses digital and traditional mediums to create original characters and to visually tell their stories.
Starting from a young age, Chris was mentored by professional comic artists Jo & Christina Chen. He graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Kinetic Imaging where he honed his craft in visual storytelling through illustration, sequential artwork, animation, and video.
He is the co-creator and lead artist of the Zeldanime Project, a fan web-comic based off "The Legend of Zelda" cartoon adaptation that reached a fan-base of over 2,500 viewers world-wide.
Chris has worked on various freelance projects for publishers and filmmakers around the world, from storyboards to concept artwork.
His artwork focuses on dynamic motion and tone in every frame.
