Who we are
My name is Christopher Walster and I am an illustrator originally from Aberdeen, but now based in Manchester.
Believe it or not, but I actually trained in acting, and during a Pantomime tour I was on, I started drawing again and my friends said I should sell my work. So a year after I plunged into my first market and never looked back.
I’ve been very fortunate in my life to have travelled a lot, and architecture fascinates me. So thats what my work revolves around, along with funny slogans and cute little cartoons. All coming in black and white so my pieces can fit in any room of the home. Family and friends means a lot to a person, so getting those keepsakes is the best gift you can get for them.
My illustrations come on greetings cards, prints, postcards, coasters, tea towels and magnets.
I was involved in the NMTF Young Trader of the Year competition and not only did I win the North West Finals in Art and Craft for 2019 and 2020, I won the overall prize for the same area and also won Highly Recommended in the Art and Craft category in the National Finals in Stratford-upon-Avon back in 2019 too.
I’ve attended many markets over the years now around the Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Sheffield, Liverpool and on the lookout for further afield.
