NATE VAN DYKE is a is a full time illustrator and artist. His former job was as a senior concept artist at NCsoft working on City of Hereos. Prior to that, he finished creating concept art and storyboards for the Sega video game, Iron Man. His work has also been featured in several magazines such as JUXTAPOZ, XBox, PlayStation and Heavy Metal. Over the years N8 has attracted clients such as Converse, Levi Strauss, Scion, EMI Records, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Burton Snowboards, Slayer and Wired.

N8’s medium of choice ranges from: pencil, ink, marker, watercolor, gauche, acrylic and oils. Regardless of what medium N8 picks up, his signature style can be seen in the contrast of his thin and thick lines in his pen and ink work and the high sheen contrast in his mixed media pieces. N8’s heavily detailed illustrations feature his heavy metal humans and his well-known future primitive apes with dark menacing personalities. His color work features studies of animals (apes, elephants, giraffes) against lustrous backdrops. His work has been commissioned and showcased internationally.

JEREMY FORSON was born in 1983. He went to college at what was then called the California College of Arts and Crafts, and graduated in 2005 with distinction. He creates freelance illustration work, and has also participated in many group and solo art shows. He specializes in painting and drawing, web design, graphic design, printmaking (etching, woodblock, screen-printing, stamps), tattoos, music, writing, bookmaking, sculpture, and fashion design.
