Nigel draws a lot. When he is not drawing complex isometric creations, Nigel enjoys eating good food, cooking, playing and listening to music, building things, exploring, and urban hiking. He grew up in Maryland, but drove to California to pursue an illustration BA from California College of the Arts and never looked back. His current work is intricate and whimsical and reflects his passion for food, animals, and the complexity of elaborate machines and urban environments. Typical mediums are micron pens on paper, acrylic paints on canvas, house paint on walls, or digitally with a tablet. Nigel has done illustrations for magazines and editorial, posters, t-shirts, and other commissions for clients all over the world. One of his favorite types of projects is to make a custom illustration big, and paint it as a mural, which he has done for many corporate clients, startups, restaurants, or just for fun. He currently lives and works in Berkeley, California with his wife, Yasemin, and cat, Fidel.
