Hi! I'm an Eisner Award nominated illustrator and cartoonist from LA.
I love reading and working in publishing. I'm excited to bring your stories to life with bold color and feeling. I adore YA, fantasy, sci-fi, and romance, but am open to exploring all genres. I want to make work that speaks to both the reader and the author. Let's make something that you feel excited about!

I'm the artist of DC's Shadow of the Batgirl and co-creator of Fuck Off Squad at Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club. I've been published by DC, Hachette, Dark Horse, IDW, LionForge, and have an upcoming comic, Forest Hills Bootleg Society debuting at Simon and Schuster in 2022. I love work that explores the themes of coming of age, interpersonal drama, and learning how to be a human.

“Nicole is a superstar and I look forward to working with her again soon. For my biography of Samuel L. Jackson, Bad Motherf*cker (published by Hachette Books), I hired her to create a new poster for the movie Unbreakable: she did brilliant work, she was fast, she was 100% delightful every step of the way. I’ve commissioned work from well over a hundred different artists in my career, and Nicole's in the top tier.”
