Meet the maker

Charlie Mackesy

United Kingdom

Charlie attended Radley College for a little while and Hexham Queen Elizabeth High School, among others, but seemed to prefer ferreting, drawing cartoons and swimming in the River Tyne. He attempted university twice but left both within a week. He never went to art school but spent three months in America with a portrait painter where he learned about anatomy and how to deal with bed bugs. Charlie began as a cartoonist for The Spectator and a book illustrator for Oxford University Press before being taken on by galleries. He first exhibited drawings in London, in The Park Walk Gallery, and has since exhibited in galleries in New York, London and Edinburgh. Charlie’s work features in books, private collections and public spaces, including Highgate Cemetery in London, in hospitals, prisons, churches and university colleges around the UK, and in women’s safe houses around the world. One of his happiest times was making drawings for Richard Curtis on the set of Love Actually so they could be auctioned for Comic Relief. He co-runs Mama Buci, which is a honey social enterprise in Zambia. He produced ‘The Unity Series’. A collaborative set of lithographs with Nelson Mandela in 2006. His journey with the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse has consumed him. He lives in their world a lot of the time and has loved making the book. Their adventures will continue.
