Christophe Gilland is a self-taught illustrator who was essentially raised at Disney World where his father worked as a special effects animator. He was then transplanted to the city of Vancouver, Canada, where he continued to be immersed in animation and art. At 17 he moved to Prague and claims that this move had a "profound effect on my creative path, as the beautiful city continues to be an endless source of artistic inspiration." Gilland specializes in drawing with extremely fine-tipped pens, which afford him the incredible detail visible in these extraordinarily imaginative drawings.
