Welcome to the online portfolio of Colin C Throm, interactive designer and illustrator. I have been drawing ever since I was old enough to hold a crayon. Always surrounded by art and classic children's literature from Norse mythology to Dr. Seuss, I have not forgotten even though I am grown now… I have spent my professional life working with e-learning, graphic design, multimedia, and interactive design, and still enjoy getting my fingers dirty with pencil, ink, and paint. My work carries a sophisticated whimsy while my scientific background provides a solid foundation for realms of fantasy. Please enjoy.

CCThrom Art and Design has an online store, which is now open. Here you can buy my original artwork, prints, or or my own handcrafted jewelry and artifacts.


I added two new images to Featured Images and reworked the color illustrations a bit.


I have updated all of the illustration section images. They are a bit larger now, and with some updated copyright information.

Lonely Mountain for Sale

Now that I have a shop set up on Etsy, I think it's also time to start featuring some work for sale here. Since there is renewed interst in "The Hobbit" these days, I'm starting with this:

"Lonely Mountain" is a half-page ink drawing on plain acid-free drawing paper. It is unframed and measures roughly 8in by 6in, but has an intense level of fine detail. I was pushing the limits with some very small Micron ink pens, which are also acid-free. The work is signed and dated from 2002. I am asking $180.00 for it.

I have posted a re-worked and re-coded illustration gallery page. I think the new format will work better for the art directors out there.


Now that I have an entry at Illustration Mundo, It's time to make my updated site live...


This page may look very similar, but I have completely updated and modernized the coding behind it. Additional updates and improvements are on the way.
