Chris Baker is an autistic Pencil Artist with a talent for creating hyper-realistic works. He is a self taught artist from Cardiff, South Wales. In October of 2011 Chris drew his first realistic portrait of Will Smith, from here he has perfected his art and continues to draw many famous people.

We got a chance to speak with Sam Baker, Chris’ mother at Newcastle Comic Con and got to hear how Chris’ journey has progressed. We talked about the process, Chris’ education, and his favourite pieces. Some of these works are just stunning. Check it out!

You can find Chris’ artwork all over the internet!
