Charlie Padgett

United States

I am an American living in France. I have been a full-time professional illustrator for over 8 years and an artist all of my life.
With my illustrations, I work hard to find a fresh perspective and create multi-layered, conceptual work that resonates with the audience long after they have turned the page, left the building and got on with the business of living. I am interested in exploring the world inside of us and how it shapes the world around us. To visualize a personal reality that overlaps with the shared reality of the world.
My work has been recognized by The American Illustration Awards, The AOI World Illustration Awards, the American Advertising Federation, the Independent Publisher Awards, Illustrati magazine, Pantone Gallery and CNBC’s top beer labels.
