I'd been coming back and forth to the collection of Nick Bantock items for a couple of years now and finally took the lunge. As if from the Sicmon Islands themselves, a package magically appeared a while later, and it was a container of delight in itself but the contents were fabulous and I'll enjoy seeing it on the wall, as I hope it will enjoy seeing me, when I walk past. Back and forth.

When I was in my early twenties I struggled financially. I worked multiple jobs to pay for school and my basic needs. I would go to a book store each day and choose a book to read. Since I couldn’t afford much I would read one entire book each day I had off. I also suffered homelessness when I was 22 due to financial difficulty. One day I discovered Griffin and Sabine. The book was so beautiful. The story was romantic and filled with mystery and wonderment. I would read each book and reread with the same enthusiasm as before. I told myself once I was able to afford the books I would by them. And then as I got older I told myself once I could afford his art I would by it. I did. I cried opening the package as my fingers drifted over each stamp. This was my youth and my accomplishments all at once. Thank you. I love it

I have wanted this piece from one of my favorite authors for a very long time and I am so over the moon that I was able to purchase it! The shipping was fast and I loved the extra touches with the stamps and drawings!

An amazing piece of mixed media (I think - not my forte) art and I love it. The description couldn’t accurately bring it to life because of the artist’s technique. Just spectacular!

OHMYGOD I NOW HAVE AN ORIGINAL PIECE OF NICK BANTOCK ART!!! Some pieces call your name, but this fat tiger ROARED mine! Even the shipping envelope was decorated (I kept it, too!)! LOVE LOVE LOVE Nick's work and will be back!! Thank you!!!
So much art, such a small studio; time, space and collectors' requests make this store ideal.
The world has changed—a regular gallery or shop has such a limited audience. Because my books have given its art something of a global following, Etsy is the best way to offer the smaller, more affordable pieces to the widest span of folk.
I care deeply about the things I create and hopefully this shop will make it possible for those who wish to possess one of my originals.
If you don't know me, you'll find my work very varied—sometimes humorous sometimes serious—a Renaissance chameleon with gently anarchic tendencies. Please feel free to poke around the store, linger with the images, and if you want to know more please visit the daily postings on my facebook page or go to my website: nickbantock.com
Author/artist of the worldwide bestselling Griffin and Sabine books, Nick Bantock's art ranges from tight figurative drawings to large painterly canvases. He is best known for his rich layered collages that subtly integrate paper ephemera with paint.
