Nathan Hamill is an artist from Los Angeles with an affinity for large eyed creatures, ranging from cute to macabre, bashful to bellicose. He was raised on a healthy diet of cartoons, comics, movies, and toys, which informed his personality and artistic sensibilities. Nathan worked at Matt Groening's Bongo Entertainment as a colorist and writer from 2005 to 2014, working on titles like Bart Simpson, Futurama, and the Library of Wisdom series. Nathan designed and released his own line of vinyl toys with characters like LAVABEAR, Boris the Raccoon, and Bellicose Bunny, which have been distributed and sold internationally.
