Nikki Cooper is an illustrator, graphic designer and gallery artist working out of the Greater Philadelphia area. Her traditional artistic endeavors have been fairly linear, from toddler to Syracuse University illustration student, only to encompass digital as well, designing print and online advertising. Still the mission has remained the same – creatures, typography, color and detail.
Nikki’s work mainly consists of fantastical, colorful animals and monsters, typically done in pen and ink, watercolor, gel pens and markers.
Influences and inspiration include Ralph Steadman, character design, Jim Henson, graffiti and Canadian artist Nicholas Di Genova. Random interests include rollerblading, soccer, indie concerts and The Office. She shares her home with her husband extraordinaire and shares the studio with Sonny, the lionhead rabbit.
