After moving around with my family growing up, I went to Troy University in 2009 where I got my degree in Graphic Design. In 2008, I met my wife, McKenna, and we were married in December of 2011. In college, I’ve experimented with various forms of art and design, however, I have been making my own art, inspired by Ralph Steadman, for just under a year now. While grid design and typography are my favorite design aspects, I enjoy working with pen, brush and ink. I also love doing, and have a high respect for, street art and graffiti.

More About Nolan

Favorite quote:
“Buy the ticket, take the ride.”
-Hunter S. Thompson

My spare time is spent:
Graffitiing and drawing and drawing and graffitiing.

Favorite travel/vacation experience:
My favorite memory is of a day hike through the mountains of Hawaii in search of a waterfall we didn’t know the exact location of. We began our hike by finding our way though the woods down a thin, muddy pathway to an unused damn. The trail then went up the side of the mountain where it soon ran into the river. Then, the trail pretty much became the river. For about another hour, we climbed, often on our hands and knees, to the top of this river head to find the waterfall we were searching for. I didn’t bring my camera fearing it would get wet, and I’m glad I didn’t!

I make:
Things in general.

Favorite music:
Pink Floyd, Blues Rock, Progressive Rock, most rock, some other stuff, and Pink Floyd.

I want to Stamp out:
Stress.

Where I like to make my mark:
In pen and ink, with spray paint or in a design that someone falls in love with.

Raving about:
Street art, mostly. Grid design and typography. Longboarding/snowboarding depending on the season.

My travel essential:
Although it might seem a bit strange for these days, I need to have a paper map for wherever I’m going to be. I always make sure that I pick up a new and updated map for wherever I will be spending any extended amount of time. Also, I always remember to carry a clean pair of socks.

Honk if you love:
Milkshakes!

Back in the day, in kindergarten, I always complained about how coloring was a waste of time; and this is the career I chose.

Trashy TV addiction:
Dexter, Sons of Anarchy, Top Gear (UK), Doctor Who…there’s more, but that would take some time.
