I’ve finally gotten around to making an artstation.com profile. Take a look here.
This weekend I will participating in the Zines and Indie Comics Symposium at The Edge, Queensland State Library, Southbank, Brisbane. You’ll be able to find me on Table 62, where I will have my Concept Art Book, Sketchbook, Prints and of course Hilt available purchase. As well as all the great comic artists and zine makers selling their wares, there’s also workshops and talks, which are well worth attending, whether you are looking for insight or inspiration. It’s a free event running between the hours of 12noon – 6pm Saturday, and 12noon – 4pm Sunday., so hope to see you down there.
The good folks at RAW Natural Born Artists have invited me to showcase my artwork at their next show, Sensory. The event takes place at The MET in the Valley, Brisbane, on Thursday 28th May, and will feature a couple dozen other local creatives from fields as wide-ranging as fashion, photography and performing art.

Yesterday saw the release of Defiant Development’s game Hand of Fate, on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and I’m pleased to say it’s getting some great reviews. So to celebrate, I’m posting these character designs I created for the game, beginning with a slide show of my process.
Over on facebook, there’s an art challenge going on… Thanks to Barret Thomson for nominating me for this five-day Art challenge. The rules are you should post 3 pieces of art everyday and nominate another artist each day. Today’s theme is Hand of Fate concept art, and I’ll be nominating Johnny Rampant. Show us yer wares, Johnny! (Nick Smith – Art Nuggets facebook page)
Good news, everyone! I’m pleased to announce that the Art Nuggets Store is now online. You can now purchase my comic Hilt, as well as my art book, Art Nuggets – Year One. Powered through Big Cartel, purchases can be shipped to anywhere in the world.

Another weekend, another Supanova Pop Culture Expo. This time it’s down in Melbourne, at the Showgrounds in Ascot Vale. You’ll be able to find me in The Alley at Booth A85, where I’ll be pimping my new comic Hilt, as well as prints. Hope to see some of you Victorians there!
