I’m Seth and I am an Freelance Artist specializing in illustration, story writing, comics, and design. But I also do creative consulting, logo design, small sculptures, and many other disciplines. I am based out of Grand Rapids, Mi
Who I am not:
- I am NOT the Native American Author/Illustrator who also goes by S. D. Nelson. But I would love to meet him.
With that, I am an American Artist with a BFA from Grand Valley State University. My work has been said to be a charming new take on classic illustration styles that embodies a post impressionistic twist with a taste of fauvism. My work is a mix of sci-fi, history, mythology, folklore, animals, symbolism, and the human condition.
The main three artist who inspire my work or who’s work I’d admire are Arthur Rackham, Maurice Noble, E. H. Shepard, Mœbius, Hergé, and Mike Mignola. There are many, many more that help to shape and influence my work, how I go about solving problems, and admire, but those are my top three. In general though, anything that tells a narrative, my eye is drawn to but my mind decides if it is worth while. Other people or works that I admire: Norman Rockwell, Studio Ghibli films, Star Wars, and Brad Bird’s Iron Giant.
If you want to keep up with my adventures; follow me on Instagram! And if you want to support me, you can go to my store and buy the things that I create! I am also always down for a pint, coffee, tea, or food with a good conversation.
