Charlie Spencer donated this beautiful, original Mission San Juan Capistrano art for our Spring Magic show raffle baskets! We will have one available to win this Friday night and one on Saturday night (5/1 and 5/2). This is an original ink art (limited edition print).
Charlie’s mother was an artist and his father a NASA engineer. He spent his childhood doodling on graphic paper using NASA engineering pencils without an eraser. Doodling on homework got him school mural gigs. He is still doing a Fresh Sketch of the Day every day. He has done a number of sketches for the band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros which were featured on their home pages. He’s also currently illustrating a graphic novel and doing work for two major music labels. This print is GORGEOUS! Value: Priceless!
