Charlie Immer is an American fine artist and illustrator. He was born in 1983 and lives in Maryland with a collection of skeletons and candy. Drawing inspiration from horror films, cartoons, nature, candy, and video games, Charlie enjoys dissecting his subjects which creates a contrast between colorful simple characters and the complex beauty of the anatomy within them.

My concepts come from my fascination with anatomy and my love of candy and toys. I have so much fun creating the blood and bones of my characters. The contrast of the smooth bodies and the complex systems beneath spilling out is very appealing to me. As I’m painting I also try to assign flavors to my characters like blueberry and green apple.” – Charlie Immer
