He refers his style as fun, light hearted, but whimsical to say the least.

Nick McInvale is a man a considerable charisma. By inclination, he is an
artist, and by temperament, he happens to be a lazy bum. A California child
by birth, though not by choice, he's spent the majority of his life in the
sun-bleached suburbia's stretching across the so-called region of So Cal.
Mixing Comic Art styles and subjects with Neo-Expressionist techniques and
flair, Nick takes heavy influence from guys like Moebius and Jae Lee to
Anselm Kiefer and Paul Cezanne. Though, as far as subject matter is
concerned, it looks like he's hooked on otherworldly dream-scapes out of a
pulp magazine or creepy, pseudo-paranormal visions of doors and other
various symbols. We expect more work to come from Nick in the near future,
and mostly likely, there's going to be a piece with a creepy door on it.
Seriously, I bet there will be.
