Christopher Conn Askew was born in Hollywood, California, in 1970. From a very early age he took up drawing very obsessively, which eventually became a profession. Having no formal art training, he turned his interest to the field of tattooing, in wgich he worked from 1990 until his retirement from the trade in 2006.
Since then, Chris has pursued his illustrative and artistic endeavours on paper, using primarily watercolor, ink, graphite, gouache and gold leaf. He currently resides in San Fransisco, California, with his son and two very large cats.
Chris made some nice illustrations for The Master and Margarita with mainly demonic characters.
