Meet the maker: Christoper Walster

"My name is Christopher Walster and I'm originally from Aberdeen, North East of Scotland.

Believe it or not but I actually trained in acting in Edinburgh, but I've always loved art. I like to be creative and got back into drawing again whilst I was on a Pantomime Tour and my friends thought I should sell my work. So a year or so after that, I decided to take the leap and put my work out there and since then I've never looked back. "

'I am now in Manchester where it has treated me and my business really well. The support this city has to offer in the creative industries is amazing.

My work is all black and white illustrations of skylines, landmarks, funny slogans and cute little cartoons. All little keepsakes of where we've been and getting your loved one a nice little gift.'

"I've been lucky enough to travel a lot in my life and I think memories of our holidays, places we’ve lived and our loved ones means a lot to a person. Also I like to doodle, architecture fascinates me and I like to be sarcastic once in a while."

"My skylines and landmarks 'to do' list is never ending. But if there is a city or landmark you are after and I've not done it yet, please let me know and I shall add it to the list. I always do the most popular ones first, but I do sometimes fast track some if its related to a commission I am asked to do."

So please get in touch.
