Nick finds inspiration in the stories and characters that compose the world of Disney as well as the craft used to portray it. Cartooning as a mode of storytelling allows Nick to explore and define his own narratives, at times comical then terrifying. “When people see my art, I want them to feel happy, then scared. Good art takes you through all the emotions.” Nick is also invested in researching the history of his art form, often naming legendary Disney conceptual artists such as Mary Blair as his inspiration. Through his artwork, Nick melds fiction with real emotion to illustrate what is worth living for – a happy ending.
