Hello! You can call me Charlie Treefrog - my parents did.

I’ve been snapping necks freelancing since 2019, before that I was working with the wonderful folks at Resn for three years.
I think growing up on whack 90’s cartoons like Ren and Stimpy may have had an impact on my love for gross details.
I’m an absolute sucker for hand drawn animation, pixels, and long walks in Google street view. To ensure I don’t have to resort to selling pictures of my hideous feet on the internet, I also like cocktail bartending.
When I’m not “busy” switching between multiple unfinished personal projects you can probably find me DJing the most insufferable music possible, learning a new language or having a wholesome fucken picnic.

If you have a project you’d like me involved with feel free to get in touch!
Or if you don’t have a project perhaps you like ugly feet? My student loan ain’t paying itself off...
