My name is Nigel Sharman and I’m a graduate with a BA (Hons) Degree in Illustration from the University Of Portsmouth. I love to create designs and characters, and tend to work in pencil and ink mainly but I am a keen painter when given the opportunity. I generally work quite traditionally but I like to explore all avenues in my ways of working. I’m forever evolving and expanding on my digital skills too, with lots of experience working as a Playground Designer and 3D Visualiser on top of many freelance commissions. My inspiration derives from many places through various art genres and artists but my focus and true love lies in Urban Art. I am also inspired by Graphic Novels, Comic Book Art and Pop Art but I’m most notably inspired by artists such as Conor Harrington, Pure Evil, David Despau, Paul Baines and Smash137.
