From day one, Charles has utilized his studio time to the fullest. If he is not behind the sewing machine crafting a new Luchador mask, he is experimenting in a number of other mediums. Charles loves learning and has experimented, working with materials such as charcoal, acrylic, clay, and plaster cast. His illustration style is dark and dramatic.  He loves creating images of his favorite wrestling stars, musicians, and historical figures. In addition to sewing masks, he has also made a number of amazing puppets and costumes.
