Nic Squirrell

Artist and illustrator


I am an artist and illustrator living in Kent, England.

I studied Creative Visual Art & 3D Design at the University of Greenwich and loved every minute of it.

My illustrations are on many products from prints to suitcases and everything in between.

I loves drawing on my iPad as well as using traditional media, particularly watercolour.

If anything stays still long enough, I will draw on it.
