He was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2002, an Ignatz Award for "Outstanding Comic" in 2003, and two 2003 Harvey Awards for "Best New Series" and "Best New Talent". Nick's work often focuses on the theme of creativity and what drives people create. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts and participates in a LiveJournal virtual studio called Act-i-vate. In addition to his indie comicbooks, Nick does an ongoing series for Nickelodeon Magazine, as well as freelance illustration. For fun, Nick plays in a band and rides his bike.
