Peter Nuyten studied graphic design between 1988 and 1992, after which he became a freelance designer. In the 1990s, he was member of Studio Iris in Nijmegen, and published his comic 'Arak' in the small-press magazine of the same name. He has done illustration assignments for educational books, children's books and history related topics. He was a member of Studio Jan Kruis, where he worked on the 'Jan, Jans en de Kinderen' comic for Libelle magazine. When the studio closed down in 2007, he continued to work on the comic as an inker on a freelance base.
The first book of historical comic 'Auguria' was published by Silvester in 2010. In the following year, Nuyten turned to the western genre and published 'Apache Junction', about the merciless hunt of the American army for Apache guerrillas.
