We have brought into the shop some fun cards and bookmarks by a neighborhood artist, Charlie Theobald. He creates wonderfully whimsical characters in watercolors. We just love the expressions he captures. Below you can read his bio. Be sure to stop in to see more of his wonderful work!
A couple of years ago I started doodling in water color and ink, and these characters came to life. Some of the figures are inspired by people I’ve seen around town, characters I imagine in books and kids that I have known. I find it relaxing to paint them. My mom prefers sending home-made cards, so she started ‘commissioning’ birthday cards from me for her friends. Their response to the cards encouraged me to print some up and see how they sold. I hope you like them and decide to send one to a friend.
Other artistic interests of mine include printmaking, animation, film making, photography, sculpture, and writing-basically just creating. I intend to use the proceeds from the sale of my cards and bookmarks towards an exchange trip during high school.
