Nick Gowman is the illustrator behind the upcoming card game "The Pirate Deck."
From his website:
My heart truly lies with cartoons and illustration and I find there is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone's face light up with a smile or even just a tiny, cheeky smirk upon seeing one of my cartoons or meeting one of my characters.
When working I use a variety of mediums, but all of my illustrations tend to start in the same way, usually with a funny idea or situation at the back of my mind. I will then charge off and sketch it down in pencil. I will then take the drawing and either ink it or scan into the computer and add the colour digitally, usually in the form of vectors.
My favourite subjects tend to be zany situations, crazy characters and grotty little monsters, although I think I can turn my hand to most subjects. I try not to be restrained to one area, I love them all and if I can broaden my skills further, then that's even better!
