Summary

Hi!
I'm Nick.

(and I'm currently making Jellybots on Patreon! www.patreon.com/jellybots )

I've been drawing since I could grip a crayon, and telling stories since I could make noises.
When at all possible, I prefer to do both at once :)

Making art that is meaningful to me while being meaningful to someone else is all I ever want to do- to share the experience of figuring out our own stories by telling them in pictures.

I have a broad range of experience and interests- I love comics, character design, cover art, children's book illustration, and I even do a little voice-acting.
I love solving visual problems both large and small- and have been blessed with opportunities to establish strong visual identities for a number of products in a variety of styles.
I've been blessed to work with companies like Disney, Dreamworks, Hasbro, EA Games/Waystone, Riot, Axis, ReelFX, Mattel, 38 Studios, Spiritwalk Games, Shining Isle Productions, The Flight Anthology and many more.

Regardless of what I set my hand to; what matters to me most is the heart of the project.

And fun colors. I like those.
