Nick Percival is a British graphic artist and Graphic Novelist primarily known for his published comic book, concept artwork and career in computer animation directing.


Percival's first published work was in the monthly British comic Judge Dredd Megazine with a horror ‘strange cases’ tale written by Dave Stone. After several similar stories in the Megazine, he then went on to paint a nine-part story set in Judge Dredd’s world in the Cursed Earth, with the series, Sleeze 'n' Ryder where Nick worked with acclaimed writer Garth Ennis.

The pair would later work together again for the British weekly comic 2000 AD on the Judge Dredd epic, "Goodnight Kiss" — another tale set in the radioactive wasteland of the Cursed Earth, where Judge Dredd is hunted by the assassin, Jonni Kiss and the mutant Brotherhood of Marshalls.

Nick also painted the Sláine story, "King of Hearts" for 2000 AD where he worked with the co-creator of 2000 AD, Pat Mills.

He directed computer generated cut-scenes for video game such as Men in Black II: Alien Escape, Z: Steel Soldiers, Carmageddon TDR 2000 and the Games Workshop licensed video game of Gorkamorka.
