NICK
he/him
aka milkytoon
When Nick first discovered that he could make legos move, he sh*t bricks. Thus commenced a lifelong lusting after the power to bring the quirky characters bouncing about in his ADHD-riddled brain into corporeality.
Yes, everyone loves watching movies, but Nick loves "film" 🙄 and lets his encyclopedic knowledge on assorted media influence his creations. See: Hertzfeldt's stick figures, psychadelics, The Simpsons (Seasons 1-8), sci-fi fantasies, sexuality, psychological horror, and the friends that peek out at him from the margins of his notebook paper as he doodles during class.
