Happy Friday Friends! I recently realized that I’ve never done an official introduction on Instagram, so most of you probably know very little about me Well that changes today! I’m Nicole, illustrator and graphic designer I went to college at Miami University in Ohio, which is also where I met my husband Ryan My first job after school was working at Wendy’s as a graphic designer. I worked there for 4 years, before starting my own graphic design company in 2015. Owning my own design business has allowed me the flexibility to spend more time illustrating. I named my illustration business On Lane Ave, because that’s the street we lived on when I started posting my drawings on Instagram. In 2016, we moved from Columbus, Ohio to the Chicago suburbs to be closer to my family. A typical day for me consists of working on design projects 9-5, and illustrating in the mornings/evenings. Ryan works from home too, so we spend a lot of time together during the work day I create my drawings using colored pencils, markers, and pens. Drawing is my absolute favorite thing in the world, and I’m just trying to get better every day. Besides illustrating, I’m a huge bookworm. I’m also obsessed with all things green, interior design, oldies music, long walks, polka dots, earl grey tea, HGTV, and my big white dog Rupert. I would love for you all to share a little about yourselves so I can get to know you better as well!
