Thumbprint Pals with Chu

The object is to use minimal details and your imagination through doodles – the art of scribbling. The activity is meant to engage the participant in drawing with no pressure to be perfect – just to have fun!

Jerome “Chu” Charles is an ever-growing artist, who ultimately aims to use his art to be less selfish. Around his teens Jerome discovered photography which lead to 11 years of excited creativity and ultimately a Portrait Photography certificate at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Around the time of college he started doing graffiti and simultaneously teaching himself illustration. Now he spends his time painting and drawing, hoping to activate a mural scene in Pittsburgh via legal means, and living by his motto “Don’t Do Bad Stuff”.
