About Chris Burke
Much of my time is now focused on drawing at live events. I have been an award-winning illustrator, caricaturist and cartoonist for over 30 years.
I worked as an advertising art director so can conceptualise and draw ideas quickly, interpreting and visualising other people's thoughts.
I have drawn at large corporate events including for a BP Ecology seminar in London , for an EU conference on Northern Europe in Padua and at a Bio Tech conference in Cambridge.. I have recently worked for Saxo Bank producing topical weekly images on line.
Published corporate work includes M&S, The BBC, Sony, Tesco, Comic Relief and animation for the Irish Tourist Board.
I have worked for most major British publications including: The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph, The FT, Tatler, GQ (UK & US), Observer, The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday, The Evening Standard, Punch, Radio Times, The Listener and Vogue.
My work is in public and private collections including the London Transport Museum and the Royal Victoria and Albert Museum.
I am available to draw caricatures and idea drawings at every sort of occasion and event. Weddings, private functions, celebrations, conferences and corporate events I work quickly and in an entertaining way, either mixing and mingling or working from a given position.
