that_healthy_glowHello, and welcome! 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’ve been creating art since before I had the ability to form complete sentences (which I still have trouble with), and have made a valiant and misguided attempt to turn it into a career ever since.

My comic-inspired art and illustration has been featured in publications, events, and venues all across the country. I’m a visual storyteller and strive to create images that are bold and colorful, yet emotive and nuanced in their exploration of ideas. I enjoy exploring a wide range of subject matter, including Day of the Dead, vampires, animals, and more, all from an offbeat and irreverent viewpoint. Through art I want to communicate my 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. I’m constantly producing new work, doing events, 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. Or if you have anything else you’d like to say, I’m all ears. And a few other organs, too. That’s not a dirty joke. Just a bad one.
