In early November I wrote a post titled The Next Step. There’s a picture of Nate in his “C Boy” T-shirt and a bit of an explanation on how that came to be.
Nate took an independent study course last semester and worked on an idea called “Alpha Folks,” a line of tees with designs created by Nate. A different face for each letter, male and female, resulting in 52 unique creations. He’s done several, and, though it’s still in the early stages, he’s on to something. The next phase is to create these images on Adobe InDesign, rather than Nate’s primitive sketch and scan method. Once he gets the details worked out, he’ll be on his way. We’ll be taking orders from his website in no time. Right?
Above is a gallery of his recent work. Some are wonderful; some need refining. I love “Q Fella.” I don’t quite see “K Man.” “L Man” may be my favorite, with his strong horizontal lip.
I’d buy “J Boy” right now. Maybe he’d give me a family discount.
