Nathan Lueth came into existence with a pencil in his hand, a feat which continues to confound obstetricians to this day. No one knows for sure when he started drawing or where his love of comics came from, but most experts agree that his professional career began after graduating from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, as a caricaturist in the Mall of America. Soon he was freelance illustrating for the likes of Target, General Mills, and Stone Arch Books. When not drawing comics for other people, he draws his own super awesome fantasy webcomic, Impure Blood (www.impurebloodwebcomic.com) He believes that comics should be for everyone, not just nerds (it should be noted that he may be trying to turn the general population into nerds). He currently resides in St. Paul, Minnesota with two cats, a turtle, and his wife, Nadja, upon whom he performs his nerd conversion experiments.
