Conjecture 2012

I have been working on pieces for a convention coming up, Conjecture, which is why there hasn't been much up here lately. If you're in the San Diego, Mission Valley, area please stop by! I'll be there doing sketches and selling artwork. Maybe YOU could get a "Nick Feretich" original!

Hey all!

I know I said a while ago I would be posting my animations here, but I've had a change of heart. I know it's been around for a while, and a couple animation buddies of mine swear by it when it comes to broader distribution. I'm talking about Vimeo! I really enjoy the site and seeing what other people have up, so, if you want to see any animations of mine, which I'll be pumpin' out more of soon, head over to:

so, keep checking back for more posts here, I should be putting things up on a weekly basis. And if anyone's looking to contract someone for some animation work, I'm your man!

Hippothetically Speaking...

So, I have to get a root canal, and I can't do anything about it until Friday. So, my doctor gave me some pain medication to help until then, because without it, I can't even chew without being under intense pain (there's a point to this, I swear). Now, I don't get high off this stuff, but it puts me out there a bit. I was trying to say, "hypothetical" but I said, "hippothetical" instead. My friends and I lost it, and someone told me to try drawing it.

How could I say no? It's just too funny!

So here we are...

Bow Down

Working on some homework for class and I wanted to make it Game of Thrones related, so I drew this up. This would be a sign you'd see in Kings Landing after season 2. I really want to read the books, I think it's something I could really sink my teeth into. Anyway, enjoy my art! Please!

Oh, Marceline, why you so mean?

"I'm not mean, I'm a thousand years old and I just lost sense of my moral code."

I love the character, Marceline, on Adventure Time. She is arguably my favorite character, close though with Ice King. Anyway, just thought I'd throw this up here, gotta get back to work!

Behold, another t-shirt idea! This one took more time than the "Generations" shirt, and I'm very happy with the result.

For this idea, we decided to do a mash up, and we felt the comic, "Calvin and Hobbes" mixed very well with the cartoon, "The Misadventures of Flapjack." Both Calvin and Flapjack are incredibly adventurous, have wild imaginations, and can find fun in just about everything.

In terms of art direction, I wanted to mix both the styles of the comic and the cartoon. The comic takes, what I feel is, a very messy yet organized approach to the drawings. Line weight is important and while not every line completes to form the object, the reader can still keep following it to complete the shape and it totally works. The cartoon, however, uses very thick lines and is very graphic in detail. The cartoon also uses very little shadow, and instead favors hatching in shadows.

I like the way the shading came in, and I feel it's about as close to the middle-ground as you're gonna get between these two concepts. Anyway, loved this project, and like I said before, I love "Calvin and Hobbes", and I love "The Misadventures of Flapjack", and I want to thank the creators Bill Watterson and Thurop Van Orman for bringing these guys into my life! :D
