A pencil sketch transforms into fashion with a message as 16-year-old Nathan learns to operate a screen print press. Jonathan Monaco, owner of Catspit Productions, smoothly explains the process like a man who has posted more than 500 instructional videos on YouTube – which he has. The design of a human face – one side flesh, one side bone – is intended to show that we are all the same underneath, says Nathan.
“All people are equal,” Nathan says. Nathan says that he loves to draw, but not all his art has a weighty message. “I like to draw animals,” he says. “I like cartoon stuff – but not SpongeBob.” Nathan says he hopes to be a graphic designer when he grows up.
Meanwhile, he is focused on high school and being a typical teen. He likes riding a BMX bike and chatting with friends on social media. He likes shooting pool and playing board games. He likes watching the television show Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments and reading the young adult fantasy novels on which the show is based. Nathan would thrive in a two-parent forever family in which he is the only child. He hopes to find a loving family that will help him continue to grow. “I want to be that kid who forgets about my past and what I used to do and move on,” he says.
