Nick Spooner was born an orphan on the plains of New England and raised by badgers.
Catching the performance bug as a child, he filed down his incisors, learned to walk upright and started acting in commercials.
Over time, Nick became increasingly acclimated to normal human pursuits such as words and school, where he discovered his opposable thumbs could be used to sculpt, cartoon, create animation and make films. Mostly about badger stuff.
From there, he worked for a time on the crew side of film production, became president of the Harvard Lampoon, was hired as a creative for Ogilvy, wrote, produced and directed at Comedy Central, fronted an NYC-based humorcore band and launched a long, award-winning career as a commercial director. He draws his own storyboards, and his cartoons regularly appear in The American Bystander, which Newsweek called “America’s last great humor magazine.” None of these accomplishments have impressed his adoptive badger family in the slightest.
More than anything, Nick loves making things with other humans. He still enjoys the eggs of ground-nesting birds and the occasional grub.
