Richly textured, atmospheric illustrations.

Nicholas Stevenson

I am an award winning freelance illustrator, animator and university lecturer living in the UK.

I'm known for creating highly textured illustrations, densely layering found imagery with strong digital colour to create works that feel enchanted, playful and atmospheric. I enjoy exploring ideas of silliness, magic, joy, shadow, folk, history, nature and mystery and draw inspiration from my early memories living on a tropical island.

I am represented internationally by Folio Art and work on editorial illustration projects, childrens books and album covers for clients such as Google Arts, The New York Times, Wide Eyed Editions, Simon & Schuster, Ferrari, The Washington Post, Warner Records and many more.

I also lecture at Hereford College of Arts on the Illustration BA(hons) course, working with second and third year students to build professional skills and create ambitious and exciting projects.
