Nick’s always had a natural talent as a free hand artist, spending any free time dabbling with illustrations and paintings, fine tuning his self-taught skills. 

Encouraged to take his art further by everyone who saw it, Nick initially began turning his illustrations into prints, soon adding a small line of tee shirts and accessories.   

Initially a hobby business, dabbling in local markets and events, Nick's drawings and designs were an instant hit and crowds would gather to watch his drawings come to life and request them on tee shirts and other apparel. Drawn Downunder quickly amassed a loyal following and our collection quickly grew. 

Living on the Gold Coast, with the ocean on our doorstep, Nick’s design style combines his passion for surfing with his love of nature, the ocean and animals.  Add to that a tropical influence with a fun retro feel thrown in, Nick’s “style” emerged and the unique Drawn Downunder brand was born.

We’ve now built a brand that we’re proud of – original, hand drawn designs that are unique
to our style and with enough diversity of themes to cater to everyone!

Our collection

Nick gets frequent requests for custom designs, hence the addition of our “pen for hire” drawing service. 

He’s created images for everything from company logos and team shirts through to wedding invitations and bumper stickers.  Additionally, Nick has designed characters and images for exclusive apparel lines both here and internationally.  Everything has his special touch and personal flare!

Everything Nick draws is free-hand and original.


We share our life with our adorable fur-kid, Bumble – a crazy-cute little pug, who’s typically with us wherever we go.  Along with his recently departed and dearly missed brother, Baby Squid, he provides plenty of inspiration for Nick’s art and is part of the framework, warmth and love that is Drawn Downunder.

Drawn Downunder – Drawn to Good Vibes! Yeewwww!
