Presenting, reading and drawing with kids during schools visits is one of Scott's favorite parts of being a children's market illustrator. Scott drew all the time when he was a kid and he still does! He approaches his work with the same fun and enthusiasm he did growing up! Scott's work has been recognized by AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts and SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) and appears in publications such as Highlights for Children and Spider Magazine.
visit with saint matthews elementary
Recently Scott visited with 600 kids presenting his illustration work for books and magazines and showing his "behind the scenes" drawings. Although being an artist is fun, it's also a lot of work! After a short presentation Scott read, drew with the kids and even played guitar for some musical inspiration! Such a fun time!
"Scott did an amazing job holding the attention of our students and teachers. He showed us how he works through several drafts and takes feedback from others before creating a final product. This was a very powerful message for our students, who often think their work should be perfect the first time. We were thoroughly informed and entertained. I highly recommend a visit from Scott for your students!"
– Emily Jennings, Librarian, Saint Matthews Elementary
