He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Christopher Peterson

Christopher Peterson
Christopher Peterson is an illustrator known in particular for his rock posters. He also does a variety of illustration, storyboards, set designs and exhibit concept designs.

Originally from New York, Peterson studied at the Art Institute of Boston and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. His clients include Time Magazine, The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Readers Digest, Fortune, McGraw-Hill, Watson-Guptill, Macy’s, Courvoisier, Warner Brothers, Joe Boxer and Bill Graham Presents, among others; and his rock posters have included such performers as Paul McCartney, Phish, The String Cheese Incident, Sting, Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello, John Hiatt, Taj Mahal and Gloria Estefan.

Peterson’s approach varies from relatively highly rendered, to painterly to loose and sketchlike. His website features sections for posters, illustration, concept renderings and sketches, and you can find an additional portfolio of his work on the Shannon Associates artists’ representative site.

I particularly enjoy the fun conceptual devices he employs in his rock posters, with band names and concert information arrayed on grain elevators, buildings, room interiors, train cars and the like.

    Hi Chris. My mom is JoAnna Gray. She has a BUNCH of comic books she would like to sell. Do you have someone you can suggest we go to for this?

    Best,
    DJ
