Going back over our archive of posts on Nathaniel Russell you’ll find we’ve featured him – directly or indirectly – a total of nine times. This is the tenth. Sometimes we’ve looked at his multicoloured space capes, other times it’s been his giant drawings of potted plants, if not his exploration of wooden cut-outs, and there was one occasion where we asked him to write some nice words for our magazine. This time we’d like to look at his illustrations of California and marvel at his talent and the sheer variety of his work.
It’s the variety that really gets us going. Checking back in with Nat’s portfolio is like catching up for a drink with an old friend who’s had a really excellent year; there’s always exciting stories to be told, new ideas to be shared; at the end your admiration for them is renewed and you can’t wait to do it all over again. Here’s to your tenth feature Nat. And then here’s to 10 more.
