My name is Kris Kaliakin and I'm an Illustrator/Graphic Designer from Malibu, CA with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Illustration. I attended Loyola Marymount University from 2011-2013 as a Graphic Design major and played for the Mens Div. 1 Water Polo Team until I transferred to Otis College of Art & Design where I majored in Illustration from 2013 to 2016. I specialize in creating flat graphic artwork showing humorous characters with an emphasis on line and bright colors. I'm also an avid surfer and have experience both shaping surfboards and teaching surf lessons. When I'm not making art, I'm at a music festival, walking the slack-line, or listening to podcasts so my mom doesn't think I'm a simpleton.
