Introduction | I sold my first cartoon in fifth grade. I made five bucks. I used it to try to impress a sixth-grade girl. It didn't work. But while I did give up on sixth-grade girls, I didn't give up on cartooning. I've sold work to everyone from MAD to Parade, from greeting-card companies to corporate clients. I'd also like to share my work with you. To find a cartoon about a particular topic, please click here. To order custom work, please click here. And to learn more about me, please click here. Most important, have fun while you're here. If you don't we're doing it wrong.

As you can see, yours doesn’t need to be a strip. It could be just one panel, a strip or even something bigger.

About Nate

You Asked For It

After selling my first cartoon in fifth grade, and throughout middle and high school, I drew all day instead of paying attention in class. My edgy humor was infamous. In fact, at one point, I was invited by my high-school principal to stop drawing cartoons that poked fun at my classmates or I wouldn’t graduate. I accepted.

After high school, I went to Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. I took the job of graphic artist/cartoonist for the school newspaper, The Guardian, and created weekly political and gag cartoons. That gig landed me an internship at MAD Magazine in New York City, during which I wrote for the magazine and cleaned their storage room. At the end of the internship, with the storage room all spiffy, I returned to Ohio, continued to work with MAD on three different series, and drew for numerous other publications.

My original series, Break of Day, is syndicated by GoComics, appearing daily in newspapers and online. I teamed with the comedian, Tommy Blaze, to create Knocking on Heaven’s Door. The series was featured on The Bob and Tom Show. It’s been collected in a hard-cover book. And it’s currently under contract with Levity Entertainment in Los Angeles to be made into an animated series.

I work with corporate clients to create custom cartoons for their businesses. For instance, I work with 21st Century Fox creating cartoons for various industry topics.  I also draw Thought Leadership for O’Brien Communications Group, with whom I worked to develop this site.  My cartoons are also featured on greeting cards on shelves everywhere from companies such as NobleWorks and Smart Alex Inc.  And with social media, I’ve been posted from other organizations such as the Tampa Bay Rays, #grammerly, and more.

And beyond cartooning, I’m happily married to my wife, Kelsey.  And we have a daughter, Ella, who is already helping me at the drawing board.FullSizeRender-9
