Art Etsy Shop of the Week

Anthropologist in the house! Aside from being an anthropologist, Nicholas also creates some fun fan art to feed our hungry geek bellies. With art honoring such fandoms such as Game of Thrones, Star Wars, and Harry Potter (to name a few), I’m crushing pretty hard on his Etsy shop. Get to know Nicholas and enter the giveaway, details below!

Girl Gone Geek Interview with Nicholas from the Harshness Etsy Shop:

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Nicholas: I am an anthropologist that has a fancy for graphic design.

What is Harshness origin story?

Nicholas:  A couple of years ago I was making a dog book with a canine-centric revision of human history just for fun.  It was purely made out of magazine collage and took me a long time to do.   A lot of people loved it so I started a tumblr and put them all on there.  I also started making them on photoshop and illustrator for the blog.  That led into selling some of them as prints on Etsy.

How would you describe your artistic style?

Nicholas: I am not quite sure how to describe it.  I don’t feel I have found a certain style that I would call me.  I like to try different stuff and would hope that shows in the different series I do.

Where do you get the inspiration for all of your designs?

Nicholas: I do a lot of movie and sci-fi related stuff.  So I would say from those I pull a lot of inspiration.

What fandoms do you want to design for next?

Nicholas: I just did some Game of Thrones posters recently.  I have been loving that series.

Favorite artists?

Nicholas: Evan Hecox and Marc Mckee.

What are some of your current obsessions?

Nicholas: I have been fishing a lot and it’s spring in Portland so trying to skateboard more while the weather permits.

If you were a mutant what would your name and power be?

Nicholas: Mark Zuckerberg and the power to control the internet.

Where can we find you in the web?

Nicholas: Etsy Society6 Facebook Tumblr and I am on Instagram under the name Harshness if anybody wants to see my daily life things.
