Charles Andrew Bates

illustration & character design • available for projects & commissions

about me

I'm a freelance illustrator, among other things. I've tackled projects for card games, comics, roleplaying games, and television. My creative sensibility comes from absorbing everything from Calvin and Hobbes and Dungeons & Dragons to Star Wars and Stephen King. My work has a clean, energetic cartoon style distilled from a lifelong passion for games, comics, books, movies, and TV.


So, yes, I'm available for illustration work. Get in touch if you think I'm a good fit for a project you have in mind.


(By the way, it's "Charlie" or "Bates"—the full formal name is just for business-y stuff like credits and contracts and whatnot.)
