Nathan Bottcher

Children’s Illustrator

Nathan has been drawing for as long as he can remember, and looking at picture books for even longer. Growing up, his imagination was captured by the creative work of Bill Peet, Richard Scarry, Dr. Seuss, and Jim Henson, to name a few. Nathan’s love of children’s books has led to a career in illustration and inspires him to create work that is bright, colorful, and fun! He graduated with a BFA in Illustration from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.

Nathan loves to make children smile and laugh with his illustrations. Although he works digitally, he loves to sit down and draw in his sketchbook whenever he gets the chance. When he’s not drawing, you may find him throwing one of the 300 yo-yos in his collection. Nathan lives just outside of Denver, Colorado with his beautiful wife and three hilarious kids.
