Nate Powell
    by Stephanie Boluk

Nate Powell is a rising independent cartoonist and author of the recently published comic, Tiny Giants. A wunderkind himself who started publishing at the age of fourteen, Powell knows the feeling of being compelled to create, which is why he sees the need for children to find venues for being heard and is a strong advocate of Do It Yourself publishing.

Powell also leads all-ages workshops on making comics. Teaching comics to children has taught Powell some interesting things about the way children relate to art, as well as his own work in the medium of comics. Here's what he has to say.
