Charles Akins' illustration and illustrative design spans a variety of approaches while retaining an overall underlying whimsy. His work could be described as kinetic and fun, while at the same time, friendly, engaging and approachable. Having worked professionally for over twenty years, he understands the many needs of many markets from editorial and publishing, to design, packaging and advertising.

Akins' work has been widely published and featured in Step-By-Step digital, The Illustration Workbook, Picturebook, and in the Hayden book: “Adobe Illustrator-Creative Techniques,” “Graphis Student 96,” the Quayside book: “Logolounge Master Library: 3000 Animal & Mythology Logos,” as well as the recent Rockport published “Design:Logo by Von Glitschka and Paul Howalt.” Also, his work is pictured in the NY Times bestseller, “Totally MAD, 60 Years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity,” and “MAD, The 100 Dumbest People, Events & Things of the Century (So Far), and numerous issues of MAD magazine and many other editorial publications.” ObscureMyEmail
