Overview

With equal parts style, humor, and insight, Scott C. has delighted an international fanbase with his unique watercolor paintings, illustrations, and drawings. Amazing Everything: The Art of Scott C. is his first monograph, the best and most imaginative works of art in his emerging career.

Admirers and collectors seek out Scott C.’s appearances at such diverse venues as Comic-Con in San Diego and Galerie Arludik in Paris to see his unusual depictions of pop-culture subjects and original creations: Victorian-era dinosaurs at high tea; lumberjacks and their sometimes-awkward relationship with trees; and ninjas lounging in their living room at home. These and other reflections of Scott C.’s artistic vision have kept him on the radar of such pop-culture trend outlets as Flavorpill and Hi-Fructose.

Read an Excerpt

Scott C. notes some things you will find in Amazing Everything:

There are monsters in this book, so do not freak out— but to balance that out, there is an equal amount of cute things as well.
There are friends enjoying each other’s company, but there are also awkward moments that must make us reflect on our own relationships.
You might find some amazing hats in this book and some beautiful plant life. You may discover the secrets of ancient Egypt and the age of gallant knights.
You may also come across those who enjoy the timber life.
You may find zombies and ninjas, because they are quite popular right now and may forever be popular.
There are cavemen in this book and dinosaurs that would like to be friends with these cavemen.
There are some rainbows in this book.
There are great houses in this book. You will see the glory of the residents that live in these houses and catch a glimpse of where they eat, sleep, and go hot tubbing.
There is fighting in this book. I will not lie. I wish there were not, but the world is full of fighting, and I must document it for you. So that we may learn from it. Learn fighting moves, mostly.
There is pizza in this book. Quite a lot of pizza, actually.
There are people hugging in this book. Beware. If you do not like hugging, you may want to shield your eyes in those parts.
There are a couple of goats in this book.
There is a map in this book that will teach you about maps. So get ready to learn about maps.

There is so much more in this book that you’ll have to read it . . .
