With his unique style, Nick has garnered a clientele that includes some of America’s biggest brands. They enjoy working with him because of the colour and expression in his work – audiences can see a little of themselves in each of his illustrations. Sometimes he subverts the norm by turning normally white characters black.
Nick’s route into the art world is an interesting one – he’s always loved art but started diving deeper into it after being diagnosed with epilepsy. Taking inspiration from the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kerry James Marshall and Jacob Lawrence, while he works Nick often listens to Hip Hop, R&B or Jazz.
Working digitally using Procreate on his iPad, Nick aims to bring out the feeling and the story in his illustrations via his colour palette – with texture and shading adding depth and tactility.
Nick’s imagery uses deep black skin tones to conjure up unique characters with lives and stories of their own. His aim is always to inspire and encourage.
