The Doodles


I'm Nicki Shaw, an illustrator of fun science facts and ideas. Through my company, Olilu Designed, I've worked on an Oceanography textbook, educational material explaining how DNA works, and multiple science comics. I'd love to collaborate on any and all Science Communication projects, so please send me a note if you'd like to work together!

I am also the creator of The Olilu Tails, a webcomic chronicling being a parent of four kids. The Olilu Tails have been featured in Sunday Haha (, an awesome comic digest created by Jen de Oliveira and Mika Song that is delivered to your email every Sunday. The webcomic can also be found under #theloltails on Instagram.

Lastly, I create all designs for Olilu Coffee - me and my husband's small coffee roasting company!
