MY DAY books

Started in 2005, MY DAY is an ongoing self-published chronicle of Portland, it’s hinterlands and the greater Northwest. Nate spends a day drawing his surroundings often times accompanied by writers Chris Ashby or James Yeary. Since MY DAY #4, each issue has been constructed in a computer-free “cut and paste/xerox” style with combinations of letterpress, relief, lithography, rubbings and/or pochoir.  Nate strives to keep all issues in print and most can be purchased for under $10 each.
