Scotty is a native of New Hampshire, living and working in Dover as a multimedia illustrator and freelance 2D animator. 

“It was all cartoons for me, growing up in Salem, New Hampshire. Drawing on paper plates with crayons, scribbling on the walls in my bedroom, or doodling in my notebooks at school when I should have been studying. When I set out on my own, I found myself learning how to make cartoons the way the professionals do. To this day, I’m still trying to figure it all out. My sketches and watercolors reflect the colorful worlds I imagined myself in as a kid.

I carry pocket-sized Leuchtturm1917 books and a TWSBI Mini fountain pen with De Atramentis Archive Black ink. I paint with Schmincke Horadam watercolors. It was a very good day when I discovered this combination of materials.

I sketch in restaurants, waiting rooms, anywhere and anytime I have a few moments to kill. The books have the wear and tear of resting in my back pocket until needed. Some drawings like the bottles and fish have graduated to more detailed studies but there are still lots of hidden gems in these pages. Also hidden in my sketchbooks are assorted business cards, receipts, toothpicks, emergency cash and whatever miscellaneous mementoes and keepsakes that will fit in the back pouch.”
