About Nathan

Nathan T. Wright is a freelance illustrator and artist based in Des Moines, Iowa, specializing in custom illustration projects, prints and books. His work is inspired by sci-fi, comics, emerging tech, animation, cartoon strips and the occasional glass of whiskey.

Before taking the plunge as a full-time artist, he worked in digital marketing with various stints at an advertising agency, his own consulting firm and a large retail company.

Nathan is a frequent presenter on creativity and innovation topics at conferences such as South by Southwest Interactive and in front of professional organizations and universities. He has taught Internet marketing as an adjunct instructor at Drake University and is active in the Des Moines technology and entrepreneur communities.

Nathan graduated from the Iowa State University College of Design in 1999 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. He once attempted to sell his soul on eBay, earning him 15 minutes of worldwide fame and mockery. He aspires to one day be distinguished enough to wear a monocle.
