Nigel was born in england and studied illustration at the Royal College of Art in London. He did freelance for magazines and newspapers for 12 years before coming to the U.S. to in 1978 to work for Time Magazine. His pictoral explanations of complex subjects gained him many imitators in the creative field. Most of all he was committed to the power of pictures and humor to help readers understand otherwise abstract numbers and difficult concepts.
