Hello, I’m Nick—
an illustrator from Cleveland, Ohio.

In case you're wondering, my last name is pronounced "May-tee", like how a pirate would refer to his buddy. Notice the web address. Get it? Hilarious, I know.

I bet you're having a good chuckle right now.

I continually work to find my own voice and bring something unique to the field. By considering modern design trends and traditional methods, I strive to create work that’s both innovative yet nostalgic.

Currently, I am seeking illustration work in editorial, publication, and packaging.

Let’s work together. Click here to email me.
