drama and mystery from nicole rifkin


The Brooklyn-based illustrator creates scenes straight out of a '50s thriller.

Both melancholy and a little eerie, Nicole Rifkin’s illustrations look as if they’ve been lifted straight out of a psychological thriller. It’s no surprise to learn that Nicole is a gifted comics artist, too – her bold, often smoke-filled compositions have the ability to draw you in in just one panel. Outside of her comics work, Nicole has also applied her pen to editorial commissions and band posters in her native New York. See a few slices of her handiwork below, or keep up to day on her Instagram.
