Boarding Pass – Nate Williams

After Eliza Jane Curtis‘s feature over the summer, and today’s Boarding Pass with illustrator Nate Williams, I’m even more convinced that Buenos Aires is a hotbed for creativity activity. But wherever you are, chances are good that you’ve seen Nate‘s work around whether for BlueQ, Urban Outfitters, Coke, United, the New York Times and many more. I’m also inspired by the fact Nate photographs lots of hand-painted signs on his travels – it only seems appropriate for an illustrator known for his hand lettering. {Thanks, Nate!}
