Charlie O. Hayward ADVT ’70

Charlie O. Hayward ADVT '70 was a cartoonist, art director and sculptor. He held a degree in art from U.C. Santa Barbara and a degree in design and filmmaking from Art Center College of Design. Early in his career he was a production designer on animated films for "Sesame Street" and "Electric Company," and he animated the film version of Shel Silverstein's classic children's book "The Giving Tree."

Over the course of his career, Charlie art directed 11 newsstand publications, including "Car Craft," "Rod & Custom," and "Hot Rod." After moving his family to Grass Valley, CA in 1985, he art directed various publications in Northern California, including the "Journal of the California Dental Association" and the "Goodguys Yearbook." He also illustrated the children's book "Sidecar Scooter," featuring the mascot of local company Lazy Dog Confections; created art for the Grass Valley Downtown Association's annual car show; and designed the logo for local restaurant chain Cousin Jack Pasties.

More recently, Charlie conceived a series of sculptures around the theme "Tribal Totems of California Hot Rod Culture," a fusion of salvaged hot rod parts and the aesthetic of Native American tribal art. His work has been shown at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley and Lois Lambert Gallery in Santa Monica.

Charlie is survived by his son Casey and daughter Carrie. The family may be contacted at PO Box 351767, Los Angeles, CA 90035.

Memorial contributions may be sent to Broadview Benevolence Fund, 4570 Griffin Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90031-1422.
