Charlie Haskins is an artist living and working in Southern Ohio. He received his MFA in painting from East Tennessee State University. He comes from a large family of artists and has recently become a father himself! In his artwork he uses a mixture of illustration and caricature to create a whimsical fantasy world full of word play, puns, and riddles.

Haskins House is the name of his art studio located in Portsmouth Ohio’s historic Boney Fiddle district at 534 2nd Street. Part art gallery, part museum, part store, it is a space that celebrates a plethora of creative sights and sounds where Haskins can show his artwork, take commissions, and contribute to the area’s artistic community.

Since attending the festival last year he has published my own coloring book! It’s 48 pages of cat art, and it’s called Tabby Road! See it here:
