Nate Neal

“I’ve all the time wished to fulfill Nate Neal! I imply, he simply will get me.”

That’s what the girl seated subsequent to me at a current convention mentioned when she discovered I work for AdExchanger.

Because the artist of AdExchanger’s weekly comedian for greater than 13 years, Nate’s playful fashion, creativity, humor – and hilariously on-point Easter eggs – had been completely suited to our droll, typically mischievous (however all the time incisive) method to protecting the information.

Enjoyable reality: Nate began freelancing for AdExchanger in 2010 after making a reference to our founder, John Ebbert, on Craigslist, again when John was working AdExchanger out of a small condo on the Decrease East Aspect.

Now Nate, the creator of AdExchanger Man and AdExchanger Lady, has hung up his cape to give attention to his personal initiatives and different work. He’ll be sorely missed, however fear not: Our weekly comedian will proceed.

We’ve been auditioning a small group of very proficient artists to search out The One. For the following 5 weeks, we’ll be publishing a comic book created by certainly one of our finalists each Friday. Right here’s the primary one. Tell us what you suppose!

Within the meantime, I requested our editorial group and AdExchanger veterans to share their favourite Nate Neal creations from over time. Please take pleasure in.
