About the Artist


My name is Art Childs. I reside in Virginia Beach, where I live with my amazing wife and our two kiddos. I have been drawing since I was just a little guy (my first-grade teacher was the first to point out to me that I have some artistic ability).

Occasionally I do some professional work, and sometimes I sell prints. But mainly I draw simply because I enjoy it.  I hope you enjoy the artwork I have posted here. If a particular drawing is not your cup of tea, at the very least (in the words of Bert from Mary Poppins) it’s better than a finger in your eye.

Here are some drawings from my childhood . . .
