About Me

Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by!

My name is Natalie Kovacs and I'm a queer cartoonist and illustrator from Appalachia. I’ve lived most of my life in a rural area with not very much money, so I spend a lot of time in nature. The natural world is my chosen place to seek solace from terrible politics and toxic, small-town attitudes. Unsurprisingly, I’ve gravitated towards representing nature’s misunderstood underdogs in my art. Nature reminds me that everyone and everything has a place in this world and deserves respect. This kinship with the fringe of the world also informs my work through themes of witchcraft, magic, and the unexplained. Having spent a lot of my life feeling invisible or unwanted, I hope that my work can help others in the same boat feel a little less alone.
