Hi, my name is Charles Chaisson and I'm a Visual Artist originating from New Orleans, Louisiana. For the past eight years I've been living in Brooklyn, New York and working as a Freelance Illustrator. After completion of college at the Ringling College of Art and Design in 2010, I moved to New York to pursue a Master's Degree at The School of Visual Arts, receiving a M.F.A. in Illustration as Visual Essay in 2012. The illustration work I've done has been primarily for magazines and theater posters, with a few book cover and advertising jobs in-between. I work mainly with acrylics, pencil, colored pencil and photoshop, but am also comfortable with most mediums. I also worked in the fashion industry for about five years as a Graphic Artist, designing artwork for boy's, men's, and junior women's clothing. Outside of Visual Art, some of the things that I'm passionate about include Science, Politics, Social Justice, Health, helping people in need, and helping others find their voice.
