Nick Craine

Nick Craine was born in Toronto in 1971 and is a critically acclaimed visual artist whose illustrations have appeared in the Atlantic, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and many more. In 2008 he was chosen as one of six Canadians included in the TASCHEN international anthology Illustration Now, a sampling of 150 of the world’s best illustrators. He is a much sought-after conceptual illustrator and adapted Bruce McDonald’s films Dance Me Outside and Hard Core Logo into graphic novels; the latter was nominated for an Ignatz Award in the Outstanding Artist category.

In his other life, Craine is the founding member of Black Cabbage and has appeared on over twenty recordings as a vocalist, including on his own solo albums, November Moon and Songs Like Tattoos. In the 1990s he directed music videos between Guelph and Nashville, including Feist’s “It’s Cool to Love Your Family.”
