“…we lost a great, great artist. Being able to do those paintings of the Self Portrait, the John Belushi, the Guy at Bar at 18, 19, 20 years old…Truly, he was a fabulous artist. Watercolors, drawings, cartoons. His paintings blew me away, his drawings blew me away. He could have gone anywhere. He could have done anything.” – Mike Peters, Pulitzer-winning cartoonist and creator of “Mother Goose & Grimm”
“Nate McClain was a genuinely exuberant painter with a real feeling for the times he lived in, mixing his irrepressible sense of fun with a deep sensitivity to suffering and pain. He enhanced the lives of the people around him with his public art, and it’s a tragedy that his career was cut short when it had only just begun.” – Julian Spalding, English art critic, author, and former curator
“Nate made one sweeping circular line to draw a face already formed in his brain. I remarked to myself, ‘Wow! He knows exactly what he wants to do (draw).’” – Shelli Lipton, founder of Hello Studios, Inc.
