He has won Joe Shuster Awards in the categories of Outstanding Canadian Comic Book Colourist and Outstanding Canadian Comic Book Artist (with Yanick Paquette), and in 2019 he was nominated for an Eisner Award in the category of Best Coloring. Nathan’s newest project is Paws: Gabby Gets It Together, a middle grade graphic novel series he co-created with Michele Assarasakorn for Penguin Random House. 

Paws: Gabby Gets It Together is the story of “best friends Gabby Jordan, Priya Gupta, and Mindy Kim. They’re different in just about every way—personalities, hobbies, family, and more—but they have a few important things in common: they’re all in the same class, they absolutely love animals, and for reasons that are as varied as the trio themselves none of them can actually have any pets. Unable to resist the adorable temptation any longer, the girls decide to come up with a way to finally get their hands on some furry friends. And, as luck would have it, it seems like their neighborhood is in need of some afterschool dog-walkers. So, just like that, PAWS is born!”
