“Someone who wants to spend his life working solely as an artist has to be a Jack-of-all-arts and spread himself very thinly across to world looking for commissions.”

Chesterman started with an illustration technique of his own invention which employs airbrush and painted gouache and acrylic inks on artboard or canvas. This technique won commissions from around the world not to mention a few prizes including the Gold mecanorma award in Paris in 1989, but around the turn of the millennia Chesterman switched to digital illustration.

“I saw the pixelated light and there was no turning back. Of course I still paint and draw as much as possible as it is the only way to keep the artist’s eye sharp. Computers make mistakes, only the artist’s eye can really see the visual truth.”
