Updates from Nate Headquarters

Sometimes day to day life seems unchanging – Nate gets up, he eats, he draws and watches cartoons, he eats, he draws and watches cartoons, he eats, he watches cartoons, he showers and he goes to sleep. Yet, things are actually moving forward. In the last few weeks there has been a lot going on.

1 – Finally, we seem to be getting close to Nate’s t-shirt line, Alpha Folks. Much is in place – copyrights, domain names and vendor. So start saving your money for a Nate shirt! (Here’s one post that shows some of his work from a few years ago: https://missionofcomplex.wordpress.com/2012/01/07/alpha-folks/)

2 – An Albany area library is interested in having a show of Nate’s strip mall art and possibly commissioning a work. More on this as it develops.

3 – Speaking of Nate’s strip malls, we have a world class photographer in place to take high quality pics of Nate’s works. No more crappy pics taken from my phone. Nate is finally getting the artistic support he needs (and deserves).

4 – I’ve been reworking a writing project about Nate, a big version of this blog. I revised and updated a completed work from a couple of years ago. College graduate and professional artist were not yet on his resume when I finished the first version. Reading through his whole story, and ours, made me cry.

Sometimes day to day life seems unchanging, until I relive the totality of the last 23 years. It’s only then that I can see how incredibly far we’ve come.
