Nicholas Baker is an illustrator based in Salt Lake City, Utah. He draws his main source of inspiration from the wilderness that surrounds the city he lives in, and he represents it with a very special technique. Baker uses the technique of pointillism, and all his drawings are made up of millions of tiny dots drawn by hand.

With a great and immersive portfolio, Baker’s work features his astonishing ability and commitment. Every monochrome illustration includes an astounding level of detail, displaying immaculate shadow and light tones. From redwood forests to ocean waves to eagles and owls, Nicholas uses black ink pens and works tirelessly to create these magnificent works of art.
