Tolkien as well as illustrations for Dr. Who and Star Trek. His clients have been Hollywood icons such as Ray Harryhausen, Ron Howard and George Lucas. Chris also produced concept designs for the films Heavy Metal and Willow. Poster work has included SuperGirl, Bladerunner and Jackie Chan's "The Protector".
