Dan Nott is a cartoonist, illustrator, and educator living in Vermont.
Dan’s nonfiction work uses comics to explore and untangle complex topics, and create a basis for understanding current events. His debut nonfiction graphic novel, Hidden Systems (Random House Graphic, March 2023) was selected as an Indies Next and Indies Introduce pick by the American Booksellers Association. He has released two comic books with the Center for Cartoon Studies, This is What Democracy Looks Like: A Graphic Guide to Governance, and Freedom and Unity: A Graphic Guide to Civics and Democracy in Vermont.
Dan’s short comics and illustrations for investigative journalism have appeared in The Nib, Spotlight PA, WBUR, and NJ Advance Media, among others. In 2022, his comics work was exhibited at Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute, for the exhibit Drawing Us Together: Public Life and Public Health in Contemporary Comics.
Dan graduated from the Center for Cartoon Studies, where he now teaches an MFA course on comics history, theory and communities called Survey of the Drawn Story.
Dan co-runs Parsifal Press, a micro press for independent comics and special objects, with his partner, Daryl Seitchik.
