I'm a freelance illustrator. My creative sensibility was informed by everything ranging from Star Wars and Stephen King to Calvin and Hobbes and Dungeons & Dragons. My work emphasizes a clean, energetic cartoon style distilled from a lifelong passion for games, comics, books, movies, and TV. I've tackled projects for card games, comics, roleplaying games, and television.
I am available for illustration work — get in touch if you have something in mind.
(I've also done extensive fiction and game writing. These days, any writing is purely on my own personal projects, which you can check out if you're curious.)
Oh, and "Charles Andrew Bates" is just for formal credits. If we're hanging out, "Charlie" or "Bates" is fine.
