okay, so heres a few frequently asked questions, well, actually theres only three, as I don’t get asked all that many questions, but if you do have a question, then by all means ask it and maybe if two people ask the same thing, I’ll get to add it here.

I really like X, is this piece for sale?
Well, this really depends but generally a few of the pieces on the website are for sale, if I can still locate them. Some have been sold and some were produced for specific jobs, people and events – but drop me an email with the title of the piece you are interested in and I’ll let you know the details.

I’m doing a school project and have been asked to contact an artist/illustrator can you help?

Well, okay, it seems like there is a thing where school students are asked to contact artists with some questions. I get few emails every year with this one (more than the ‘is this piece for sale’ ones anyway]!) and will always try to answer emails as soon as is possible. I’ll try to offer whatever help I can but if you can organise your questions so they’re simple to answer then thats all the better.

Do you also create quality websites as X has recommended you to me but I can see no reference to this on your website?
Yes, indeed I do, the mysterious Mr or Ms.  X was correct. I am in the process of organising an updated web site design portfolio which will most likely appear at* at some point in the future. Until then you’ll just have to take my word for it.

*Update. Since 2014 Chris Hathway’s multifaceted multi-media services are now being offered under the Hathway Creative moniker, and as such, can be found at

Is it not spelt Hathaway?
Nope, Chris Hathaway is someone else entirely.
