Illustrated bird art prints by Nick Pettit

Rock Bird Prints is the shop front for the illustration work of Nick Pettit. Nick began illustrating during his time at art school whilst studying graphic design, before starting a successful career in brand design. He now combines creating art prints with his day job as owner of Blackbird Brands, a design studio based in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

With an eye-catching style inspired by nature and wildlife and a love of mid-century design, Nick’s illustrated bird art prints have unique characters all of their own, made all the more so by the human names he gives them.

Each illustration is available as a high quality Giclée art print in a range of standard ‘A’ sizes ready for framing and hanging on your wall.

Buy a special edition print to help save the Tree Sparrow

For the past 30 years, the Herts Bird Club, a branch of the Herts Natural History Society, has been working to protect the last remaining breeding colony of Tree Sparrows in the UK at Tyttenhanger near St Albans. Over the past couple of years it has built six fenced nesting areas with feeders and nest boxes in a bid to increase the numbers of Tree Sparrows and to monitor their wellbeing – hopefully protecting their futures for generations to come.

Buy a signed print of ‘Trevor’ or ‘Ted’ and we’ll donate 10% of profits to the Club, which will go towards food and the maintenance of the nesting boxes.

Thank you for your support.


Thank you so much for the prompt delivery. Harold is fantastic and already taking pride of place on our lounge wall. We’ve had some great comments about him.

Very happy with the quick service and the quality of the print is first class. The colours are stunning and bright. Will definitely be buying from Rock Bird Prints again.
