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

Hi! I’m Charlie.
I’m a freelancer from Canada, and Dinos & Teacups is my creative studio.
My office fits in my backpack, allowing me to travel as I create eye-catching illustrations
and fully customized Explainer Videos for international clients who inspire me.

Enjoy!

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
I was interested in having an animated video to convey to the viewer what my app is about. 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 or any other graphic design services. 
Tiana DiValerio Founder at Lufuu Inc.
I needed a creative designer to come up with interesting ideas on how to best capture concepts like internet safety and privacy, and Charlie came up with great creative ideas. Communication was a breeze; Charlie would send updates, to which I would reply with small suggestions. It was a very pleasant way of working with a lot of interaction and quick communication. When we finalized the project I was left with several beautiful and fitting illustrations. Very happy I found Charlie, and for future design needs I'll definitely be going back to her.

Last year, we were looking for a designer to “translate” our content topics into attractive Facebook cover illustrations. My online search led to Dinos & Teacups, a website which immediately caught my attention because of its vivid and appealing portfolio. A successful collaboration was born! Since then, Charlie provides us with refreshing illustrations and designs on a regular basis, always on time. If you are looking for a conscientious, hard working, punctual, enthusiastic designer full of original ideas, you just found her.

Grandma

So when I married into this crazy and lovely Dutch family, I never thought I'd feel so close to them as I do today.
Here is a petit homage to my husband's dad and his Oma.
She loves her coffee and enjoys when we take her to see the flower gardens behind her home.

Also I feel like these outlined eyebrows are very much a la @[1312159:Diana Stoyanova], no?

Also this may or may not be the first time I’ve illustrated five proper fingers on a hand lol, y’all know hands are hard 👐
