View this piece in VR

A Canadian illustrator and 3D animator, Nick’s dive into VR began with the Oculus DK1. Inspired by VR artists like Goro Fujita, he started painting and animating with Quill and AnimVR in 2017. These pieces were painted in Quill and inspired by Nick’s interest in feathered dinosaurs, which he feels allows for much more creativity than the traditional scaly grey monsters often depicted in the movies. By presenting something familiar in a new and exciting way, Nick encourages the viewer to reconsider the creatures which ruled the earth for millions of years. He hopes that viewing these pieces in VR will inform a sense of scale and majesty. With his work, Nick tells small, concise stories bottled into their own little worlds. He treats each piece like a diorama, meticulously placing characters, props, and environments to create a narrative in the viewer’s mind. He hopes people will consider the pieces carefully and find the Easter eggs hidden in each
