Flixclusive Interview: Artist Scott C. photo
Flixclusive Interview: Artist Scott C.
by Hubert Vigilla

Scott C.'s art is silly in a good way and childlike in the best way. It's on display in his two books of art -- Amazing Everything (Insight Editions) and the recently released The Great Showdowns (Titan Books) -- as well as his webcomic Double Fine Action Comics, his gallery shows, and his design contributions to games.

I had a chance to interview Scott C. by email. He seems really friendly and goofy, the kind of person it'd be fun to riff with for a while. I wish had a chance to talk to him in person since there are some questions I should have asked (but missed) and a couple follow-ups that could have moved a conversation in interesting directions. Since we both grew up in the same city (San Jose, though he's a couple years older than I am), I probably would have asked him more stuff about the South Bay, like if he ever went to Bullwinkle's when that was still a thing.

Scott C. currently lives in New York, and based on his Twitter feed, he's holding up okay after Sandy hit. Fellow artist Kate Beaton (Hark! A Vagrant) was hanging out at his place during the storm and did these sketches. Like Scott C.'s Ghost art we posted on Halloween, Beaton's work is a nice dose of levity, though these sketches during Sandy are a good from-the-ground chronicle of Manhattan over the last few days.
