A new member at Periscope.

As of 2011, Periscope Studio boasts two dozen talented artists and writers all tucked into one busy downtown office suite. Our membership list has been closed for years, but we’re proud to announce that we’ve brought aboard one of the most talented emerging cartoonists in Portland: Natalie “Tally” Nourigat.

Tally is already known in the comics and illustration world for her beautiful and distinctive work. Her lush linework, unique manga-inflected style and sprightly sense for gesture and composition make her art a definite standout, and her magnificently professional attitude makes her a pleasure to work with. We’ve been huge fans since we met her as a student in 2008, when it was immediately clear that she was destined for big things.

Fresh on the professional scene, Tally is already hard at work providing art for two graphic novels, in addition to keeping up with her burgeoning portfolio of illustrations and self-authored comics (including autobio webcomic Between Gears chronicling her last year of university). We look forward to her classing up the joint in 2011!

Allow Tally to bring a little sophistication into your own life by checking out her work at RandomProduction.com or by contacting her at , and join us in welcoming her to Periscope Studio.
