I was invited by COMPUTER ARTS MAGAZINE to speak and give a workshop at the 4th Annual Computer Arts Show in Sao Paulo, Brasil. Continue reading
- "A month after Nate came to American Greetings to give a talk and workshop, artists here are still talking about what a great event that was. It's rare to find an individual so generous with his ideas, his methods, his work, and his time. He's even a nice guy. Nate's workshop was especially useful in providing some cool tools and ideas for generating new work. If you're looking for someone who is energetic, enthusiastic about making art, creative, inspirational, articulate, with a good sense of humor and humility, Nate is your guy. If Nate was a movie, I'd be nominating him for an Oscar."
American Greetings."Nate's talk was a real highlight of our extensive programme at OFFSET2010. The auditorium was packed with excited illustrators who loved his work to designers who might not be too familiar with him but all left inspired by his cogent and interesting dissection of the creative process."

Not only did he share is amazing work with stunning visuals but also his insights on creative brainstorming and personal discoveries. Did I mention he achieved this in a 7-minute talk in a foreign language? It was our pleasure, Nate!"
Buenos Aires, Argentina."Nate's outlook on image making is very inspiring, he has a unique way of identifying and incorporating every day life experiences into his beautiful creations. His philosophies on idea generating/ brainstorming are priceless for us, as we are always looking to generate new and fresh product ideas."
American Greetings."Nate is the kind of artist who inspires the audience: active yet relaxed, talented yet humble, successful yet approachable. He's a generous speaker, he's articulate and he has a great following. We sold out right away when I produced his lecture at the Society of Illustrators of NY."

Society of Illustrators of New York, Lecture Producer."Nate Williams was a fantastic source of inspiration to our creative division here at American Greetings, which consists of 100's of artists and writers. His lecture/talk and workshop exposed our creative community to his extensive knowledge of the industry + techniques on problem solving and his amazing blend of artwork. He shared unique ways in bringing out one's own personal creativity + style that was invaluable for growth within our studios here in Cleveland."

American Greetings."I've invited Nate to share a lecture with my graphic design class at University of Buenos Aires. He has sparkled my student's imagination since he showed his entire history (from his early begginings to his current work) pointing out he reached a creative freedom when he realized that inspiration comes not from computers, but from art and culture"
