Hello. I’m cartoonist Chuck Whelon. This website is a showcase for some of the projects I’ve worked on over the years. As an artist, I aim to create work that is entertaining, original, and broadly educational. Planet Urf is the place where my characters come from. It is a world that exists somewhere out there, just beyond our own ordinary, everyday reality.
I’m the author of a wide variety of internationally distributed children’s puzzle and activity books. These include the popular “What to Doodle?” series for Dover Publications and the search-and-find titles ‘Where’s the Penguin?’, ‘Where’s Santa?’ and ‘Where’s the Princess?’, published all over the world in many different languages. I write and draw the monthly “Dr. Dig” comic strip for Cricket Media Group’s ‘Dig’ magazine and produce cartoons for Goodman Games’ ‘Dungeon Crawl Classics’ RPG books. I also created the comic boardgame “Legitimacy” published by Minion Games, and illustrated a number of other games for Minion, including ‘Those Pesky Humans’, ‘Grave Business’, ‘Tahiti’, ‘Nile’, & ‘Battle Merchants’. Most of my works are available on Amazon.
I was born and raised in Basingstoke, England and now live in San Francisco, California with my wife & son. I am a member of the National Cartoonists Society and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. I am represented for freelance work by the Beehive Illustration Agency. Follow me on social media for my latest works.
