Lot Details


A virtual illustration class with Charlie Mackesy, artist, illustrator and best-selling author of The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse. As part of this unique experience, Charlie will share his story and drawing techniques with you and your guests as well as gift you (the winning bidder) with a personalized illustration following the class.

Charlie began his career as a cartoonist for The Spectator, before going on to be book illustrator for Oxford University Press. His award-winning work has featured in books, private collections, and public spaces including hospitals, prisons, churches, university colleges and galleries across London, Edinburgh and New York, and in women’s safe houses around the world. He worked with Richard Curtis on the set of Love Actually to create a set of drawings to be auctioned for Comic Relief, and Nelson Mandela on a lithograph project, The Unity Series. Away from art he co-runs Mama Buci, a honey social enterprise in Zambia. His first exhibition for the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse was in London in November 2018. His internationally bestselling first book was published in October 2019. Charlie lives in London with his dog Barney.

This experience can be enjoyed by the winning bidder and up to 4 guests for a maximum of 60 minutes.
