Long time no update! 

After dabbling with and putting it off for a really long time (like any self-respecting / self-deprecating artist would!) I’m finally biting the bullet and opening up a Patreon

This past year, despite working on some really awesome projects, my personal work has really taken a back seat. I almost (kinda did) burnt myself out pretty badly last winter and it’s dawned on me how few chances I’ve had to work on my own stuff, and how little I’ve been able to share! 

I would love to make that kind of work a priority again.

I’ve always enjoyed sharing my process and answering as many questions about art as I can - and anyone generous enough to be a Patreon would allow me to dedicate more time to that! I’ll still be working on other projects too of course and I’ll still be sharing all my work in the usual places, but I’ll be offering sneak peaks, Q&A sessions, time lapses and hopefully, eventually, some live Q&A / streaming sessions too! 

Thank you all so much for the support, Patreon or not!  ♥

You've got the same birthday as my sister, and we have the same name, except mine's spelt Charli! Your art is AMAZING, and I think I'm going to read ACOTAR, as I've only read ToG.

Hi Charlie,  

I highly doubt you'll remember me, I was a patron until finances changed.  Name's Naomi, and I remember saying how, between your art and a friend's word of mouth, I was tempted to read the ACOTAR series. Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought all 4 books over the weekend. Started on ACOTAR last night. Four chapters in, and I am completely and utterly hooked.  Seriously, do not want to put it down, and am debating whether I could substitute sleep in order for more reading time.
