Nick L’Ange is a Cape-Town based freelance illustrator with an adaptable and flexible style, although his specialty lies in cartoons and comic book style illustration.
He spent his high school years studying fine arts and design at the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg. Upon matriculating he moved down to Cape Town and enrolled at Michaelis School of Fine Art at UCT, but left to pursue an alternative career in music and sound engineering by studying at City Varsity.
However, the scratchy song of the pencil is forever in his heart, and graphite his bones, digital paint his blood!
Upon completing his sound engineering studies he landed a job at Strika Entertainment, where he worked as a full time illustrator for five years, working on projects for clients such as Caltex-Chevron, MTN, Eskom, SARS and African Bank.
In 2010 he made the move to full-time freelancer, doing jobs for clients such as Heinemann, Maskew-Miller Longman, and Macmillan, as well as a variety of jobs such as storyboarding for TV, and poster design for NGO community uplift projects.
His services include book and magazine illustration, storyboards, designs and layouts, concept art, character design, portraits and caricatures.
However, no stretch of the imagination is too far, and if you name it, Nick L’Ange will draw it for you!
