Christopher Doll is an artist and designer living in the Pacific Northwest.

I am an artist and designer who specializes in space, astronomy, and science fiction subjects. This site is a showcase of my lifelong passion for art. I love living in the future.
As far back as I can remember I've always enjoyed drawing, inspired by the Apollo missions and science fiction stories. In college I studied film making and later, Industrial Design. Both tracks gave me a chance to focus my creative energy towards visual design and production methods that would give me a wide range of skills for my impending career.
Then the consumer computer industry exploded, opening doors that didn't exist at the same scale when I started college. My design skills and experience allowed me to break into game design, which I later focused to user interface design. On the side I've maintained a number of creative hobbies, including scale model building, cartoons, and digital art.
Exploring Space and Science Fiction Art
Recently I returned to fine art, in particular astronomy and science fiction art, and found in myself a new drive and focus for my skills. And I've had a few successes as an artist so far.
2014 proved to be a breakout year for my space art. For starters, I was fortunate to have provided the cover art for author Becky Chambers on her first science fiction novel, The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet.. Her novel did very well and was recently picked up by Harper Collins for the US market.
2015 to Present
In 2015 I released my own book, Coloring Space 1 an adult coloring book featuring spaceships and scenes of my own design. I am currently working on several follow-up releases to this series as well.
And for the 2015 holiday season I've begun offering these planet globes, hand painted from the latest NASA data. Each globe comes with a variety of bases or can be hung as an ornament.
I am available for hire, contact me for information on how I can help you with UX Design, Websites, or any space/science fiction related artwork and models.
Currently I'm hard at work on more adult coloring books in my Coloring Space Series. I've been approached for more cover art, which I will be sharing here on my site very soon.
And I'm excited to have recently announced a new science fiction novel called Stellar Explorer. I've wanted to write my own science fiction novel for a long time, and now is the time to pursue this dream.
