A daily comic diary about my last year in college.

Panel 2: my new desktop background.
Hi, I've been reading this and I'm enjoying it. I've been living in NYC for the past 4 years, studying Cartooning in SVA. I'm actually graduating in 4 days.

U mentioned in this page how you wondered being awake in this city 4 in the morning. For me, when I'm up late working on my art or just on my laptop, theres a freedom in the lonliness. I feel I can be myself without the pressure of society, which is always there especially in a busy city, yet at the same time I don't feel truly alone 'cause I know that in the city that never sleeps there are people just like me enjoying the relative peace and quiet of the "sleeping" city at night.

Anyway, this comic is fun to read, and is nostalgic and relevant to my own worries about graduating and real life responsibilities. I'll keep reading, hope you're doing well in life
Whoooo!! Omg Natalie I am so excited about the comic! I AM BUYING A COPY AS SOON AS IT'S OUT!! I watched the interview. It's so awesome to see you "come alive" after seeing the comic version of you for so long. I loveee youuuu :)
Here is some new artwork--a chapter break--from the Between Gears book!

Still coming out February 22:

Here's a post with more artwork, a link to a video interview I did recently, an art show announcement, and info about buying original pages:

I love this comic so much. I've reread it countless times, and whenever I read it I feel like everything will be okay. Thanks for this fantastic comic/chronicle!
I WANT TO BUY A COPY SOOOOOO BAD!!! It will be my daily thing to look to when I'm feeling down.
Will do! Congratulations on the feature :D

I started rereading BG for the third time...then realized I should probably just wait for the book to come out in print :D

So honest! I love it :D
Oh boy oh boy! Image Comics's February solicitations just went up on CBR (, and Between Gears is among them!

story / art / cover NATALIE NOURIGAT
This honest, autobiographical account of a college senior’s life will transport you to the land of Jell-O shots, term papers, job interviews, road trips, and sanguine optimism in the face of uncertainty and change. Trade paperback collects the comic in its entirety, with 30 pages of new material!"

I am incredibly excited; this is my first book and I am honored to see it get the Image treatment!

I'll post in the next few months with more book previews and any new ordering info. Please help me spread the word between now and February 22! :)

Hell, I'm a fan of all seven. XD Oh god, Firefly...

I really do love this comic (besides your awesome sense of humor, your skill with comics and line weight makes me swoon). Thanks for sharing this year of your life with us! <3
Awesome. Congratulations and good luck with everything to come :)
This was a wonderful note to leave off on. I've been reading this comic for more than a year now, and I've loved every minute of it. Thank you so much, and congratulations on ending it! =)

(I'll be eagerly awaiting any comics you decide to do in the future.) <3
Congratulations on posting the final page :D I've truly enjoyed reading this, and I wish you luck in your future endeavors :D
