Written by on June 16th, 2014 // Filed under Commissioning

While visiting Guernsey last week I met Nicholas F. Romero. After working as a graphic designer in Miami, he moved to Los Angeles, working as a face painter and caricature artist at Universal Studios in Hollywood. He now lives in Guernsey working as a tattoo artist and artist.

After seeing a sample of his work while wondering around the Sunday market by the Sea front in St Peter Port I asked him then and there if he would be the next cover artist for Diplomat. Below are the roughs for the July/August cover I will post the final cover image in July.
