The Last Pajamarai...

Nick Velardi is an illustrator and graphic designer born and raised in the Philadelphia area. He specializes in both traditional and digital art and cartooning, and makes a mean sandwich. In the Spring of 2013, he graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design where he served two terms as the founding president of the school chapter of The Society of Illustrators.

Nick currently leads the North American design and visualization arm of Capgemini's Accelerated Solutions Environment. In the ASE, he has worked with many Fortune 500 companies including J.P. Morgan Chase, MetLife, CHS, Time Warner, Kellogg, and more. He has also had the honor of working with amazing non-profits like Junior Achievement of New Jersey and Boys and Girls Club of America. He regularly creates commissioned work and personal work which is featured in this portfolio.

Although Nick has the chiseled features and mechanical skills of a fully grown man, he proudly retains the imagination and wonder of a boy who moonlights as a great warrior fighting imaginary monsters that live in his closet... a pajamarai.

When he isn't doodling or painting he can be found writing songs, seeking adventure, and battling closet monsters. Read Less
