Charlie Largent

Indiana native Charlie Largent does all the illustration and design for Trailers From Hell. He received his BFA at the John Herron School of Art in Indianapolis and his MFA at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. After graduation, he created commercial illustrations for advertisers and publishers while also developing his fine art. He began a series of one man and group shows (in New York, Chicago, Indianapolis and Los Angeles) that continue to this day.

In 1997, Largent developed Charlie Hill Illustration which provides digital illustration to the advertising and editorial world and includes Coca-Cola, Microsoft and A&E Network among his clients.

In 2000 Largent moved to California, beginning a stint as film reviewer (for Video Watchdog) and writing screenplays. He sold an original story, Tagged, to UPN for the most recent incarnation of The Twilight Zone hosted by Forest Whitaker and co-wrote the original screenplay The Man With Kaleidoscope Eyes, which will be directed by Joe Dante. In addition to his illustration and design for Trailers From Hell, Charlie is currently working on a series of drawings for an upcoming exhibition, as well as a book on film. Charlie’s writing is represented by Judy Coppage of The Coppage Company and his commercial art is represented by Mendola Artists (in the US) and Meiklejohn Artists (in the UK).
