WELCOME TO DINOS AND TEACUPS
AN ILLUSTRATION & ANIMATION STUDIO
AND A ONE-WOMAN SHOW

Hi! I’m Charlie.
I’m a vegan freelancer from Canada, and Dinos&Teacups is my creative studio.
As an ex-digital nomad, I enjoyed 5 lovely years of slow travel while creating
eye-catching illustrations and unique animations for a variety of clients.
I’m now settled in Spain, and more motivated than ever to collaborate with
studios, agencies and companies who share my values and inspire me.

Let's go!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Animation

I specialize in custom Explainer Videos, from storyboard to illustration, animation and sound design, but I also do animated e-cards, ads, promos and all of that fun stuff! 

GIF

While this acronym officially stands for graphic interchangeable format, I like to think of these as quirky little gems of action. Think incredibly short, infinitely looping, very cool animations.

Illustration

I’ve had the chance to create a variety of 2D illustrations, from assets for Explainer Videos to large printed posters. My illustration style is colorful, playful, and I love bold characters.

TESTIMONIALS

From day 1, everyone involved could see the value that working with Charlie would bring to the project. Communication was solid throughout, with flexible scheduling of Skype calls and very clear replies to feedback and problem solving.  In Charlie, I found an extraordinary value and a true creative partner, who really helped to elevate ideas in addition to bringing them to life beautifully. I would absolutely recommend working with Charlie; there could not be a better partner and value out there.
Jon Barthmus Associate Creative Director at DID Agency
It has been a joy to work with Charlie on our animation project. Seeing her creative flair bring our ideas to life has been so exciting, and throughout the project she has made the process as straightforward as possible with clear communication, flexibility and plenty of fantastic ideas. I very much hope to work with Charlie again in the future, and am already recommending her expertise to others. 
Elena Orde Senior Officer at The Vegan Society
I was interested in having an animated video to describe and convey to the viewer what my app. Charlie’s style was exactly what I was looking for and I fell in love with her animations. She explained everything in detail from the beginning and laid out her expectations from me, and what I should expect from her. Because of this, our communication was quick and reliable. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great professional animated video.
Tiana DiValerio Founder & President at Lufuu
Working with Charlie was a wonderful experience. We were looking for spot illustrations to bring our fin-tech app to life. Charlie delivered lovely illustrations and was easy to work with. Rather than many lengthy meetings, Charlie stayed in constant communication with us in order to understand what we were looking for and revise as needed. Despite the 6 hour time difference, Charlie was incredibly responsive. Hopefully we can work with her again when we have additional illustration needs!
