ABOUT

Chris Koelle (b.1982) is an award-winning illustrator whose dramatic, visceral artwork has helped tell compelling stories across multi-disciplinary mediums including graphic novels, documentaries, feature film, animation, illustrated books, and fine art. Koelle has created powerful illustrations for the Oscar-nominated documentary Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience; Splinters, a documentary about surfing history and culture in Papua New Guinea; Battle Surgeon, a fiction graphic novel about a gifted Navy combat surgeon suffering from PTSD; The Book of Revelation graphic novel (Zondervan) that dramatically visualizes the entire New Testament biblical text over nearly 600 illustrations, and A Tale of Delight, a heartbreaking indie film about an illustrator’s experience of loss, grief, and PTSD. Koelle is currently illustrating a motion graphics film about new prosthetic technology for combat amputees. Clients include The National Guard / GX Magazine, The Documentary Group, Oxford University Press, HarperCollins Publishers, and Chronicle Books.

Chris is married to Annie, resident artist at Art & Light Gallery. Their two children may or may not grow up to make pictures for a living. They all live and work under one roof in Greenville, SC.
