Hello, and welcome to Alt World Studios, the creative home of Nick Davis, writer and occasional artist. All works are creator-owned to bring you unique adventures and voices that teach hope, courage and most importantly friendship. The stories of Alt World Studios are based in the world of the Night Guardians. An interconnected fantasy universe, where the monsters under the bed and the Boogeyman exist, and we are defended by heroic cuddly toys and their kids from the bumps in the night.
About Nick Davis – Writer and occasional artist
Nick Davis is an Englishman in the USA, the writer and occasional artist of the Night Guardians, the ongoing adventures of heroic kids and cuddly toys who bump back against the bumps in the night and their master, the Boogeyman.
Nick grew up in a small English market town called Melton Mowbray, and devoured the newsprint comics of the time; from 2000AD, Battle, Warlord, Tiger, the Beano and more. It was a time of Rupert the Bear annuals, Muppets, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, Dungeon and Dragons and Action Force! Along with being a fan of Kenneth Grahame’s Wind of the Willows, and the E.H. Shepard illustrated Winnie the Pooh, Nick is also an avid reader of pulpy mecha novels, Captain America, manga and anything Tolkien and Pratchett related.
Joining Games Workshop in the mid-90’s, first as a Mail Order Troll, Nick soon moved to the design and production arm of the Games Workshop Design Studio, where after working on Warhammer 40,000 3rd Edition and various army/codex books, he was tapped to become a feature writer and production assistant on White Dwarf Magazine by Paul ‘Fat Bloke’ Sawyer. In this environment Nick contributed articles on terrain building, painting toy soldiers and gaming, all while getting a monthly magazine ready for publication.
In the early 00’s, Nick moved to the USA, joining Games Workshop America to create content for the website, before ending his run with the company with a small stint on the USA version of White Dwarf magazine. It was during his time with Games Workshop America, that Nick worked on the warhost ‘In a Flash’ gaming conditions for Lord of the Rings, with similar rule sets for Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000. This inspired Nick to create the Alt World website, first to publish alternative world gaming supplements using the Warhammer and Lord of the Rings gaming systems, before changing the name to Alt World Studios, and evolving the website to be his creative voice for storytelling on the interwebs.
Nick still lives and works in the USA as a digital marketing architect and graphic designer for a DC health care non-profit. Occasionally, he can be found plodding away on a worn out keyboard, attempting to draw, or playing with Lego while he explores and tells the stories of the tea-powered worlds of his imagination.
