I am an internationally published author and cartoonist. I am the creator, artist and writer of "Pewfell", a semi-autobiographical, epic fantasy sit-com that began it’s life on the interweb back in the early 2000’s.
I have created a large number of children's puzzle and activity books for various publishers, I also designed and illustrated the comic boardgame "Legitimacy" published by Minion Games, and have illustrated a number of other boardgames for Minion.
I am also known as the cartoonist for Goodman Game's 'Dungeon Crawl Classics' Role Playing Game. I am also the author of a puzzle book for kids called 'Wizard Pickles'--if you would like to publish it, let me know!
In my previous life, Chuck worked as an art director in the advertising world but I promises that I won’t do it again.
I was born and raised near the Basingstoke roundabout, but now live in San Francisco, CA.

A new series of designs available in my RedBubble store:
New design in my RedBubble store. Highly educational!
Here are some pictures of me at the California Academy of Sciences, in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. I am drawing pollinators for the kids, as part of the Academy’s annual Spring Festival, in my capacity as illustrator for GeoTots. Now I know what it is like to be an exhibit at the zoo!
Geo Tots is eco-education for children. Fun play, based in real life science. We were invited by the Academy to demo our game, Bee Amazed!, to Academy visitors on six consecutive weekends in March and April.
Bee Amazed! teaches young children about the importance of bees and the different roles bees play in the honey hive. The bees were designed in consultation with renowned bee-expert John Hafernik.
Bee Amazed! is for children aged 2-8. It is available now as a free download on Android, iTunes, Kindle and other devices. We also have a big new update in production.
