There’s a handful of illustrators out there in the world that can draw a smile from your lips even on the most depressing days of the year.

Nishant Choksi is one such picture-drawing talent, capable of immediately elevating your mood with the briefest of flourishes from his brush and ink. The Brighton-based illustrator has been on the books at the Central Illustration Agency for a number of years meaning he’s worked commercially with the likes of The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Atlantic and Wired as well as producing personal books and stories on the side. With an undeniable flair for creating instantly communicative imagery from the simplest of lines it’s not at all hard to see what Nishant is in such high demand. Long may his witty career continue!
