Hello there! I'm Nina
and I draw on stuff.
I hail from Switzerland, and have settled in the warmth of Brooklyn, NY. I am a freelance illustrator and designer with a Bachelor in Visual Arts and a Masters in Media Arts.
I have had the chance to work with diverse clients from all over such as Collective Arts Brewing, Impeesa Productions, Yoga for the Resistance, Coucou French Classes, Bookinou and Save Art Space; as well as private commissions and educational programs. My work has been exhibited at the Storefront Project Gallery in New York, The Gordon Square Art Space in Cleveland, the Public Library of Albany and as part of the Panels for the People in Brooklyn. I have published an illustration album "The 24H Book" in 2016.
2018 has been a fruitful year as I have worked among other things, on two children’s books. The first one “Small Voice Says” by the amazing Mike and Mackenzie Morrison is out! The second “Tabitha, five stories” written by Carol Diethe and translated by the fantastic Doris Gasteyger published in Germany by Zwiebelberg Verlag, is slated to come out sometimes in 2019.
I am currently working on the second album of the Small Voice series “Little Hands Help”.
When I am not drawing some googly-eyed little dudette, I knit hats . I also swing dance and love pro-wrestling. I do not have a favorite color (errr, maybe a soft yellow...)
I am available for commissions and collaborations. Get in touch!
Pattes de mouche
We opened an indie apparel label in the summer of 2018 called Pattes de Mouche. We offers unique graphic tees, hoodies and other fun apparel designed by yours truly, with the help of the secretive collective the Bushwick Kangaroos. Check it out here
Pattes de Mouche [pat də muʃ] is a french expression akin to "chicken scratch". It's a humorous idiom that directly translates to "fly's legs", referencing the wiggly hair on the bug's legs looking like a squiggle! It's always made me chuckle, and it seemed fitting for my doodles, so voilà!
