Artist Spotlight: Nathan J.
Each month one of our Inkers displays their artwork in the office gallery. This month Nathan J. has shared his paintings and illustrations.

Eco-Friendly All The Way
I love how easy it is to “Go Green” these days. So many clothing manufacturers are taking steps to use recycled and organic materials to make their fabric. Even more impressive, they are improving their manufacturing processes to be more eco-minded and efficient. One of my favorite companies is Anvil. They use organic cotton and [...]
Make it Personal!
What has two thumbs, great taste, and stands out in a crowd? You, in your personalized t-shirt or hoodie. The shirts I love the most are the ones that have my name on them.

Using color to make a statement is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Think neon posters, flashy yellow sports cars, the time I dyed my hair fire engine red in the 9th grade (perhaps not the most flattering shade, but a statement nonetheless)!
What’s Your Type?
When I go about my day-to-day life, I try to take time to appreciate the little things. From the soothing siren of my alarm clock, to how well my sunroof dries my hair as I’m running late to work, and even how new construction always seems to be springing up (just for me!). Some might say these observations are weird, but they’re little [...]
