Hello, and welcome to my website. My name is Nicholas Ivins and I am an award-winning artist, illustrator, and graphic designer based in Southern California. I also do comics, but don’t tell anyone. I have been creating art since before I could even form complete sentences (which I still have trouble with). I’ve been making a valiant and misguided attempt to turn it into a career ever since.
My comic-inspired art and illustration has been featured in publications and venues all across the country. I consider myself a visual storyteller and strive to create images that are bold and arresting, yet subtle and nuanced in their exploration of ideas and issues. Through my art I want to communicate a unique and twisted perspective on the world, and whenever possible, to weird people out. I apologize in advance.
Once you peruse this site you’ll come to realize that I’m a pretty interesting guy. Or perhaps just an extremely functional madman. But either way, you’ll get to know me a little better and see the kinds of things that I do. I’m constantly producing new work, doing events and shows, and getting into mischief, so check back often. If you’d like to buy any kick-ass art and knick-knacks, have a look at my store. Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries or questions. Whether you need an illustration for your magazine, a logo for your company, or a piece of art to hang on your wall, I’m your guy!
Let me know what your needs are and we can talk. Or if you have anything else you’d like to say – questions, comments, etc. – I’m all ears. And a few other organs, too. That’s not a dirty joke. Just a bad one.
