NICKI GREENBERG – Melbourne Artist
icki Greenberg is a writer and illustrator with a special interest in sequential art narrative – a fancy way of describing comics.
Nicki’s first books, The Digits series, were published when she was fifteen years old, and sold more than 380,000 copies. Since then, she has devoted most of her ink to comics, but has also written and illustrated fiction and non-fiction books for children.
At seventeen, Nicki fell in love with The Great Gatsby. Almost ten years later, she set out to pay tribute to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel by interpreting it in comic art form. It took more than six years to complete this enormous labour of love.
This mad undertaking was followed by three years’ passionate work on Shakespeare’s Hamlet, which was finally staged on the page in 2010. Nicki lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her family, their poodle and two bad cats. In her spare time she works as a lawyer.
