Nethery Engblom

Hi there! My name is Nethery Engblom and I am a cartoonist/children’s book illustrator. I have been drawing since I could hold a crayon, and making comics since I was in middle school. I grew up in both Texas and Alabama, and since 2005 I have been living in NYC. Thanks to my amazing parents and some hefty student loans from Sallie Mae, I graduated from SVA with my BFA in Cartooning. I am very inspired by my previous teachers David Sandlin, Peter McCarty and David Mazzucchelli. They helped me find my voice; discover my love for children’s books, and my passion for printmaking. As of right now, I am a freelance artist usually working on comic books for children or young adults, and on my free time I work on a picture book I am both writing and illustrating. My goal in life is to have my work published and spark some imagination and happiness into the lives of kids of every age. Check out some of my work below and let me know what you think!

Cats vs. Dogs

These two pages were a short story collaboration I made with my friend and fellow cartoonist, Greg Fenton. He wrote and I illustrated, this was definitely some of the most fun I've had working on a comic.

Manhattan is Elsewhere

Some colored panels for a comic book I'm illustrating called Manhattan is Elsewhere. The author, Wendy Lehmann has been working on her story for at least five years, and is very devoted to her book. It involves romance, super heroes, time travel, history and New York, what more could a young reader want?

Wandering Mind

Just a small sample of a short comic I made for my portfolio. Its 4 parts long, Wandering Mind is the first part which involves a little boy with an overactive imagination.


Here are a couple of prints from a book in progress of mine. It’s a children’s book about a man who wakes up one morning and thinks he is a cat.
