Nigel creates complex isometric murals and illustrations. The detail is all done by hand and with a lighthearted sense of humor that keeps you looking, and smiling. Nigel has worked for a range of companies, from large, innovative brands like Google, eBay and Redbull, to smaller start-ups, and projects that include large scale murals to more traditional print projects for well-known publications. Bold, bright and complex, Nigel’s signature style uses isometric line art and a striking but simple color palette, creating seek-and-find type drawings, as well as illustrations that feature complex fantasy architecture and/or imaginary machines. There’s all kinds of activity going on in Nigel’s work and it’s no surprise to find that his influences include Martin Handford (creator of Where’s Waldo?), MC Escher and the original SimCity computer games.
At home in Berkeley, California, he lives with his wife, Yasemin, son, Luka, and cat, Fidel Catstro.
"When I started getting serious about my drawings, I tried a lot of different pens, and the Sakura Pigma Micron pens where the only ones that gave me bold, consistent, and crisp lines with assurance of archival longevity and minimal smearing and bleeding. They are simply the best pens in the category, and if you are using something else, it will be at the sacrifice of your art." -Nigel Sussman
