About

Thanks for viewing my illustration, I'm Lon Chan, a freelance illustrator working out of my studio next to Brighton's Royal Pavillion – here are some things you might like to know about me...

My artworks are intricately detailed, contemporary compositions that juxtapose both a stylishly glossy and hand-crafted quality – a unique combination of bold colours and hand-drawn lines

As well as being selected by the jury for Lürzer's Archive's 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide I have exhibited my print artwork around the world including for Legendary Pictures Kong: Skull Island Official Art Show, Tribe: The Art of Kong.

Inspired by my love of natural history, pop culture and art nouveau, my work is the brainchild of the 80’s anglo-scandi-chinese melting pot I grew up in.

I trained as an architect before deciding that I'd rather be making beautiful artwork than buildings.

I've created illustration work for some great clients over the years from BBC Wildlife magazine to Dark Star Brewing Co. My illustrations have featured everywhere from beer cans to television and I was lucky enough to present a portrait to my all-time hero Sir David Attenborough as a 89th Birthday Present.

Yes, I love the Beastie Boys – RIP MCA

I'd love to hear from you if you have some ideas for a project, so give me a call or ping me an email and we can discuss them in more detail.
