Nicolas has been drawing and painting since he was 5 years old.
He is a self-taught artist that grew up on 80s and 90s cartoons, and comic books which fed his creativity all the way into adulthood. He switched careers 6 years ago to follow his illustration dreams. During that time he fell in love with cel animation. He is hugely influenced by Hayao Miyazaki films, Samurai Jack and French animation.
Nicolas lives in sunny Cape Town, South Africa with his three giant cats and hundreds of plants. He hopes to one day pass on what he knows to younger artists.
