Marc Nipp can often be found ambling through the Old Strathcona Antique Mall or thumbing through issues of 2000 AD at Warp 1 in search of visual stimulation.
Drawn to the colours and designs of his childhood, Nipp’s home studio is littered with curiosities — from analogue stereos to Hot Wheels to luchador masks — which later inform his aesthetic or subject matter.
Whether representing Edmonton as a pinball machine or creating a Jasper-themed backpack, Nipp taps into 20 years of graphic design experience to create thoughtful illustrations capable of communicating complex ideas.
Nipp’s drawings are bright, clean and filled with lighthearted nods that are a delight to discover.
