KC Exit Interview: Illustrator Nathan Fox

From large Mutant Mosquitoes to sumptuous femme fatales to souls that turn into wolf form, illustrator Nathan Fox has drawn and seen it all. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Wired, ESPN, Entertainment Weekly, Mother Jones, Spin, Mad Magazine, DC Comics, Vertigo, Dark Horse Comics, Marvel and more. And, up until just 2 weeks ago, he was based here in KC.

For this Thursday's Central Standard, we conduct an exit interview. Fox has left Kansas City to teach a graduate Visual Narrative program at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. We'll learn what attracts him edgy, horrific subject matter, and what he'll miss about the pace of our city.

"The opportunities that KC does provide is something that’s not necessarily here in NY or on the west coast – the affordability and the time to take your own pace." - Nathan Fox
