Nolan Pelletier illustrations keep your eyes busy. Drawing inspiration from ancient and modern history, lost civilizations, and cats, his pieces are full of patterns and details.

“I find it very fun and stimulating to look at art that is full of pattern and detail, and there’s something hypnotic about the act of creating it,” he told Polpettas.

“I read a good passage in a Victorian decorating book that said that good design should replicate the complexity of nature. The outside world is full of detail and pattern and movement, so why shouldn’t design be as well?”

Based in Toronto where he shares his space with his wife, illustrator Kaley McKean, and their Maine Coon cat, Snoopy, his work was featured on theNew Yorker, the Globe and Mail, and theNational Post,amongst others.
