I want to introduce you to the artwork of my little cousin Nathan. When I was told he likes to draw, my reaction was something like "Oh, that's nice. Good for him." I really didn't give it much of a second thought, since all kids like to draw. Once I actually got to see what he was making, I was floored. He has stacks of notebooks filled with an entire universe of tiny characters. At first glance it looks like pages full of sheer chaos, but with closer inspection, there is a definite method to his madness. I'm pretty sure he doesn't draw them, he just opens the book and shakes his head, and every idea he's had all day just falls onto the page.
In a way, he makes me jealous. Reading his comics, I get the impression he's not TRYING to accomplish something, he's just accomplishing it. I am very proud of him, and I have no doubt that, in time, his work will gain a lot of attention. He has a new blog for his work at thex-17.blogspot.com. Take a look and check back often; there is an inexhaustable supply of it! Leave comments and let him know what you think! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks.
