Nigel Buchanan is a New Zealand-based illustrator, recently moving back after living and working in Sydney, Australia for over 30 years. He began his career as an airbrush artist, but transitioned to Photoshop “as soon as Macs were user-friendly.” Buchanan’s bold, colorful, graphic portraits have been a mainstay of 8by8, the quarterly soccer magazine edited and designed by Priest + Grace, but he also creates conceptual illustrations and is working on a children’s book.
