I promise I'll update with some of my own art this week. I was knee deep in pencils for issue 2 of Oz all last week am caught up now. But for now you'll just have to settle for another kick ass artist to check out.
I became aware of Nathan's work one day while I was at the comic shop and flipped thru the first issue of Pigeons From Hell from Dark Horse. I was blown away with in seconds. As most of you know, that doesn't happen often, but with in a few pages I knew that Nathan must be destroyed and his skills transfered to me like some kind of Harry Potter magic situation.
Nathan is a great example of what it means to go at with no fear. There are lines everywhere on the page yet it doesn't ever seem to be too much. He knows what it's like to make his drawings act. (obviously this is a thing with me!)
Nathan has done some work on DMZ as well as PfH and he showed me a issue from Heavy Metal...the name escapes me, but it is sick!!!! I was about 2 inches away from have the pleasure of Nathan drawing one of my short stories at Marvel but the timing didn't work out. So hopefully sooner rather than later I can make that happen.
I had the chance of meeting Nathan this year and not only is he a great guy but he also was selling his originals. You would think they are 11x17 like everyone else's, but no... Nathan is no mortal man and must do his pages on like 16x26 or some such shit. It's AWESOME! I've added a photo of my 2 pages that sit framed on my shelf. One from both DMZ and Pigeons from Hell.
