Known for his surreal and hilarious creations, the UK-based anonymous artist has amassed a legion of devoted fans. From animations for the BBC (opens in new tab) to commissions for national newspapers (opens in new tab) and ironic World Cup t-shirt designs (opens in new tab), it's clear that his weird sense of humour has tickled thousands.

Hiive commissioned the artist to highlight the variety of industries represented on their website; from photography to graphic design, Chris' tongue-in-cheek approach will have you in stitches. "His pictures capture some of the more surreal moments that may happen in the day-to-day of the most coveted creative job roles out there," said Burke.
