Early life

Nick grew up in Suffolk, Nottinghamshire and Manchester and was trained in graphic design at St. Martin's School of Art. He takes his inspiration from the pop and graphic art of the 1960s, which he experienced as a child. His work is split between illustrating for other writers, most notably Jacqueline Wilson and Jeremy Strong as well as Kes Gray, Giles Andreae, Julia Donaldson and Michael Rosen, and producing his own picture books for a younger audience.
