It’s hard not to love Nicolas. Not only is he a talented calligrapher, but his warmth, generosity, and sunny personality just make people want to be around him.
That’s one of the things that struck me the most — his ability to meet people and let himself be guided and inspired by those encounters.
That’s kind of the story of my own life, as well — after spending a year studying literature in college, I realized all my friends were artists, and that helped me understand who I was and to make the right choices. I’m also really touched by his passion for an art that’s been somewhat overlooked, kind of like illustration, which used to be all over magazines in the past, and is so rare today. Plus, we both come from similar backgrounds, and if there’s one thing that means a lot to me, it’s being able to say that no matter where you come from, or where you started, there are no limits when you follow your passions.
Now I’ll let you read the interview with Nicolas!
What was your dream job as a child?
When I was a child, I wanted to be a butcher. I don’t know why exactly.
