My name is Drew Charles Carriker. I’m a cartoonist and a story teller. Cartoons and fiction have always been my specialty and it still is today. I have always drawn cartoons, even as a little kid. My grandmother taught me about arts and crafts and I went from there. In the beginning I would create characters out of paper or construction paper. Many times my inspirations are from my childhood favorite characters and from those experiences I have started writing stories and often drew characters, mythical and fictional. In High School I loved to draw and create, but after that I began to be busy with working and took time away from Art. A woman from my church had cancer and I decided to make her an angel which reignited my hobby and I hope to work for Hasbro or Disney studios someday.
I learned about Merchant Street Art Gallery of Artists with Autism when it opened it doors. I have found new opportunities to create my sculptures and have sold pieces through the Gallery. Recently I have started accepting commissions for custom sculptures. If you are interested please contact me below.
