Nik has been drawing since the age of 8, and skateboarding since the age of 12. While he has had some formal artistic training from high school teachers and some college profs, he has been left to his own devices for most of his career. He works as an artist for an educational software company by day, but by night he draws all the things in his head deemed "too dark" for children. He currently works from/ lives with his beautiful wife and their two dogs in good ol' Michigan. ~


My name is Nik Charette. I like to illustrate the weird/ occult and macabre things in the world. I use my (mostly humorous) brain to filter an idea, abstractly if possible, and spit it out onto a page for all to see. I work primarily in digital media, but traditionally as well. I draw inspiration daily from skateboarding, music and nature. More of my work is on my blog at
