harles A. Filius was born in a house he helped his father build in a small town 2800 miles east of Los Angeles. His career in cartooning began within
the confines of those early formative years of grade school, which was spent happily filling in all those wasted, empty margins so common to all text books and exams of that era.
Charles takes great pride in his
cartooning. He also takes great pride in the fact that he has never been featured on America's Most Wanted...although some claim that is due to lack of ambition on his part. He's half the calories of other
cartoonists and nine out of ten dentists surveyed recommend Charles over gingivitis. Don't ask about the tenth dentist...he's just gross.
Charles can do whatever you ask (with the exception of striking a match on
a bar of soap). If you expect him to be patronizing, however, it will cost extra. He is the one cartoonist who dares answer the age old question: "How many surrealist painters does it take to change a light
bulb?" (The answer is, of course, "A fish. ")
He is a member of the National Cartoonists Society and has been working in the graphic arts as a designer and cartoonist for nearly 20 years. He began
self-syndicating "Paradox Found", a single panel comic, in February 1998. He has also created two adoption-themed comic strips, "IS IT MINE" and "SWAN: AN ADOPTION ADVENTURE".
scientifically proven, it is believed that Charles IS more fun than a barrel of monkeys. We'll keep you posted on this rumor. He currently resides in southern California with his cat, VanGogh (yes he has both ears).
