CORVIDOPOLIS is the illustration & art of Chris Adams, based in Corvallis, OR. I take on client work, commissions and pair up with creative teams on projects of all types & scales. My work is heavy on hand media and traditional printmaking techniques, and I always try to create work that stands out with marks from a humanist process.

Detail of 28 x 40 Acrylic & Graphite piece, Abba Zabba Griot. From a series of portraits capturing an imagined primitive futurist reality, where shaman, priests and witch doctors abound in an attempt to make sense of the scraps humanity has left behind.
Print Focus Artwork
Most of my work passes through a screen at some point. Whether I start with pen & ink, graphite or I'm working on a mixed media object, integrating hand-printed processes is key.
