CREATIVES TO WATCH IN ’22 – Nicholas-Vincent Black
If you want to watch digital illustrator and animator, Nick Black, you’d better speed up. Because if he isn’t at work on his computer making something awesome, he’s on his bike speeding around a track like the Millennium Falcon making the Kessel Run. (Okay. Okay, no more Star Wars references.)
We’ve known Nick for awhile now. He’s designed posters for CreativeMornings/Charlotte and Carolina Panthers-related graphics for our newsletter, The Biscuit.
In our humble opinion, he doesn’t post enough of his work on Instagram, but we know he’s always working, for himself or for Wray Ward. And, that just means that when he **does** drop something new on the ‘gram, it feels like a gift.
MILES TO GO … AND A BIG YEAR AHEAD
Since our first meeting a few years ago, we’ve been drawn to Nick’s humble nature, his quiet, but confident manner and his pure kindness and generosity of spirit. It belies the firey heart of an artist we know lies beneath, in the same way that beneath the whimsical work he shares online are hours of work and incredible skill.
Every time we meet Nick, we’re better for it. Just as every time we see his art, we’re drawn in further.
We just have this feeling that 2022 is the year that he bursts off the starting line of January and tears off into a creative race to the end, peddling as fast as he can and taking us along with him.
Just contemplate this: In the few moments it’s taken us to write this, he’s already completed 15 laps on his bike and dreamt up brilliant creative ideas with every turn.
Dust off your bike.
Take a spin with Nick.
Like what we write?
