Hello and welcome to my online portfolio – My name is Nick and I’m a cartoonist from Salisbury, England and I’ve been drawing cartoons since I could first hold a pencil!
I particularly enjoy character design and creating crazy and bizarre characters in my own unique style, although my style has been known to vary depending on the requirement.
I enjoy using a variety of media, but mainly work in digital format, although there’s nothing quite like creating a spontaneous pencil sketch! I’m heavily influenced by hours and hours of Saturday morning cartoons and badgering my mother for comics at every available opportunity!
If you’d like to know more about my particular skill sets, take a look at my LinkedIn profile.
Illustration and cartoon illustration
If you require any form of illustration or cartoon work for your website and marketing activities, I would be more than happy to create some unique artwork for you. By combining creative ideas and a range of innovative styles through my illustration and cartoons, I will be able to produce a piece that communicates directly to your audience.
My illustrations are created initially on paper as pencil sketches and then digitised to create crisp vivid and unique drawings. I’m able to adapt the style to compliment your company’s identity and brand. These digital illustrations can then be included on your website, email newsletter or banner advertisements.
Printed material often suits illustrational designs. With the addition of cartoons or illustration you can create highly memorable publications or marketing materials.
One of my favourite pastimes is creating cartoons. Why? Because they are always so well received and make people laugh. They are always the most recognised part of any design, and the part that people get the most enjoyment from. I begin with initial story board concepts to create a range of ideas that suit the brief and addresses the issues needing to be raised with an original and humorous slant.
children’s book illustration
Whether you are writing the next best-selling children’s book or compiling a book of crazy little critters the inclusion of some custom illustrations will set it apart from other competing publications.
brochure and packaging illustration
Illustration can be used effectively over a number of mediums including brochures and packaging. Simple effective designs speak more than words and give more character than photos. Add a little more interest and personality with some illustration to suit your brochures and products.
corporate Christmas cards
It comes around faster each year and this year will be no different. If you want to stand out with a custom drawn or designed company Christmas card and have grown tired of the usual variety box selection then why not have a custom designed card for your clients?
