Just finished a new portrait of Hank Williams Sr. Acrylic on Wood Panel.

I will be showing (selling) this and many other pieces on Friday, Nov 22, and Saturday, the 23rd at the Cornelia Artists Building. 1800 W. Cornelia, Chicago, IL 60657.

Thanks to Lisa Larson for offering show space to my wife and I next to her works of art.

Blasted Heath ep

Logo for my band "Blasted Heath". Hand drawn, colored in Photoshop.

For those of you who don’t know me, my other love is music… My band “Blasted Heath” is currently working on our first ep right now and I cant tell you how excited we are. It’s amazing to be working with such great musicians, they make recording a pleasure rather than work. I will post some links as soon as we have something for you to hear.

Recent Work


So, I’ve been painting again and really enjoying it… I was commissioned by 2 different people to do a Spock portrait… here is the one I just finished. I’m currently working on one of Hank Williams Sr. – I will post pictures as soon as its done.

If anyone is interested in a custom portrait let me know. I will also be making Giclée prints mounted to wood of my most popular images (which seems to be be Spock) and will be posting a link to my Etsy store soon for a place to buy my art.

Self Portrait

“Self Portrait” 8″X10″ woodcut.

Charles L. Baruffi, a Chicago artist with over a decade of experience working with a myriad of programs and their subsequent versions including the entire Adobe suite; Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, After Effects, Premier, Flash, Dream Weaver as well as 3D programs like Maya, Z Brush, 3Ds Max and Lightwave. I incorporate a passion for tradition and a solid foundation in fine arts coupled with an understanding of current digital media to produce innovative aesthetic solutions. My studies in anatomy and figure drawing complement my work in character animation and 3-D modeling. A background in painting and illustration transition to clever graphic design, composition and layout. A keen eye and steady hand lead to my proficiency as a draftsman proving beneficial from initial sketches and concept work all the way through production development. What sets me apart is my ability to utilize modern design principals in concert with somewhat antiquated techniques to produce original, dynamic and timeless appeal.
