Hullo, there! I'm Lydia Nichols, a freelance illustrator, designer, and anthropomorphizer. I've gone to school twice (BFA in Illustration, Syracuse University, 2007 and MFA in Design, Tyler School of Art, 2013) because I'm a giant school-loving nerd and now I continue that love by doing a bit of adjunct teaching at fantastic schools including MICA and Moore. Before setting up shop on the east coast, I enjoyed the Bay Area as an art intern at Pixar and then as the Children's Design Fellow at Chronicle Books. Tea drinking, mural making, and book reading are among my favorite past times so if you're in the area, let's have a tea party and talk about our favorite books!
