Hi. I'm Charlie.

ph. +33  668 623 068

Born and raised in Kentucky. Now living in Bordeaux France. I worked for many years in the advertising/design industry while always keeping one hand on my illustration career,  now both hands full on illustration.

 Here's what some of my clients are saying about me:

"Charlie is able to convey difficult scientific material in succinct and clever graphics that are far more creative and innovative than what one sees on traditional scientific journals. His illustrations consistently get enthusiastic feedback from the authors, the editorial board, and our readers." 
Silke Morin - Managing Editor,  Molecular Metabolism

 

"Charlie is the consummate storyteller and his work is almost magical. Charlie is highly ethical and personable... simply a joy to collaborate and work with. You will find no one better."
Matt Fischer - Owner, Chief Creative Officer Curiosity Advertising

 

"Beneath his humble presence, Charlie has a rare imagination that never seems to stop. He understands people -- adults and children alike -- and knows how to touch them through art. The perfect combination of playful and professional." 
Lori Dierig - author of Runaway Imagination
