Scottish illustrator based in Manchester.

Hi there!

My name is Christopher Walster and I am an artist originally from Aberdeen, North East of Scotland (the granite city) but now based in Manchester.

Believe it or not but I actually trained in acting in Edinburgh, Scotland, but I've always loved art and can now say I'm a full time artist! I like to be creative and got back into drawing again whilst I was on a Pantomime Tour and my friends thought I should sell my work. So a year or so on, I decided to take the leap and put my work out there and I've 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.

Take a look at my collection and see what you would like and you can purchase your favourite items. I also do many markets around the Manchester and wider area, so follow me on Instagram for all the latest updates @christopherwalster

If you want that extra special item for you or as a gift, I do personalised illustrations too. They can be a landmark, family pet or landscape, so please get in contact via here or on my email.

Thank you looking around my store and have a great day :)

    They screen print my designs onto the tea towels and sort the card sleeves out for me too.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

If you wish to cancel or make changes to a custom item, please contact me within 24hours of final agreement. Refunds or exchanges are not possible as it is a personalised illustration to you. So please have a think before purchasing.

The process -
- Please message me the photos, links and any added text you may want added to the illustration.
- I will always do a pencil sketch first and get the okay off you to make sure it is what you want. I will send a photo of it and after the okay, I will continue with the pen.
- You will get the original illustration and there are various sizes available, so please check the custom listings on my shop.
- Frames are not included in the prices

Check out my website for further examples.

Refunds and Exchanges

If you would like to cancel your order, please get in touch as soon as possible.

Once your order has been posted, I will only refund or exchange your item 14 days from receipt date. It needs to be returned to me in sellable condition still in its packaging within 30 days of receipt date. Outbound postage will not be reimbursed and it is the customer’s responsible for return postage. Once I (the seller) receives the item, I will send off the replacement/refund if all the above has been followed.

Custom listings are not refundable or exchangeable.

Postage

All items are sent in a hard backed envelope apart from A3 sizes which are sent in a tube. This is to reduce the risk of damage whilst in transit.

UK delivery addresses - sent as standard First Class. A3s will be signed for. Delivery is usually 1 to 5 days of dispatch date.

International delivery address - ALL sent as standard airmail from here in the UK. (ONLY Custom Listings will be sent as tracked and signed for). Delivery is usually 1 to 4 weeks of dispatch date. If you haven't received your item after 20 working days, please get in touch.

Please keep in mind that postal disruptions do occur with strikes and bank holidays and at customs. These can all affect arrival of your order and these events are out of my control.

No Cellophane Bags

I am trying to do my bit in using less plastic. So I have now stopped using cellophane bags for my online orders, and instead using stripy paper bags. Please let me know what you think in a review if you purchase anything off my shop as I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

With the plastic issue coming to light with how its effecting our environment and oceans, I wanted to do something to help prevent this. I do still use cellophane bags at markets, and buy products wrapped in the stuff. So I am only starting the journey with using less, and look to change my other methods.

Items in my shop

All the illustrations are all drawn my myself, Christopher Walster.

I retain the copyright © of all images and illustrations, and must not be reproduced without my explicit consent.

Customs and import taxes

Please be aware that as I am a seller in the UK and the UK has now left the EU, there are new rules in place.

If you (the buyer) has purchased outside the UK, you may incur extra charges from customs and import taxes and this is your responsibility, not (I) the seller. Also things are taking longer to be processed so your order may take a little longer to arrived. I ask for you to please be patient, but if your order hasn't arrived in 20 working days from the dispatch date, please get in touch.

Once its been posted, your order is in the postal service hands and is outside my control. But I will help where I can if an issue arises.
