Nick Dewar:: 1973-2010

Renowned illustrator Nick Dewar died just this week at the age of 37. His artwork graced a plethora of magazines and publications, including the cover of The Devil Wears Prada.
Born in Scotland and spent his childhood growing up in a small fishing town on the East Coast, he then went on to attend art school in Glasgow. He lived in Prague, London, New York and a sheep farm in Cumbria. He recently moved from New York to Southern California, where he no longer had to bathe in his kitchen. Nick Dewar is known, and will be remembered, as one of the best illustrators of our time.
Design* Sponge were privy to his home mid-2009.

37 is far to young to leave this Earth, despite a legacy left behind.
