About the Author

Nathan Jurevicius was born in 1973 in Bordertown, a place made famous for its meat factory and as the birthplace of Bob Hawke. At the age of six he had his first one-man show, selling three pieces, including the legendary 'Woman with a fly on her nose in a phonebox'. Today Nathan is an artist with sell-out shows around the world. Scarygirl is his most popular character so far, with an online comic, artwork and prints, and a range of vinyl toys.
