My Bio
Christopher Shy Biography

Christopher Shy was born in Kentucky in 1972. He is a self-taught artist, who felt a particular affinity to Andrew Wyeth, as well as Rembrandt. His first published illustrations were at the age of 17, under a pen name. In the early 1990s, his studies would lead to the fusing of canvas and digital. He formed Studio Ronin in 1996 and he would soon emerge from among a group of young digital painters to become one of the leading figures of this early movement. His large tempura paintings would be exhibited in several cities around the world. It was at this time the first collection of his work was published, The Art of Studio Ronin, followed by Ronin. Christopher Shy would go on to co found Ronin Arts, Artemis Publishing, and Black Watch Comics, with Michael Easton. Under is his direction, Studio Ronin would branch into visual design, and complete work on a dozen feature films. In 2005 Christopher Shy would start the graphic novel, Soul Stealer, with Michael Easton. This trilogy would take 5 years, and became critically acclaimed. For his latest graphic novel, Christopher Shy traveled to Alert Bay, on Cormorant Island, British Columbia, to research The North End of the World, a fictionalized account of Edward Curtis, and his time with the Kwakwaka’wakw, written by Dave Hunsaker.
Christopher Shy is artist or author on 16 graphic novels.
