Chris Weston is a British illustrator who has enjoyed a long career working for the comic-strip industries on both sides of the Atlantic. After getting his start drawing JUDGE DREDD for the weekly UK magazine 2000 AD, Weston has gone on to contribute art to BATMAN, SUPERMAN, THE FANTASTIC FOUR, SWAMP THING, and THE INVISIBLES for DC and Marvel.
However, he is probably best known for his work on two creator-owned series: THE FILTH (with writer Grant Morrison) and MINISTRY OF SPACE(with writer Warren Ellis). His more recent comics work includes the J. Michael Stracyzynski-written and Eisner Award-nominated Marvel series THE TWELVE, for which he also wrote a prequel story entitled THE TWELVE: SPEARHEAD that won an AICN Comics Award for Best One-Shot.
Since then he has branched out into the world of film concept art and storyboards, working with director Albert Hughes on movie projects like THE BOOK OF ELI and a live action adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo’s AKIRA. Most recently, Weston has enjoyed a popular and growing sideline in producing limited edition silkscreen prints based on popular films.
