Experience as an artist

Scott launched his illustration career in 1994, drawing cartoons and illustrations for publications of the Office of Research at the University of Guelph, where he also earned his honours B.A. Scott went on to work on the creative team at the safety communications company Creative Options for three years, and then moved on to a freelance career where he worked independently and led teams of artists to efficiently produce large numbers of high-quality illustrations on a tight schedule. Team projects included two graphic novels, a series of 260 illustrations for 3 publications by the Canadian Red Cross, and a series of eight whiteboard animations for the food security organization Feeding Nine Billion. He has also held several leadership positions in the volunteer organization, Motomo Nation. In addition to his current role as illustrator, comic book artist and whiteboard animator, Scott is the production manager at Trina Koster Photography, a well-established photography studio where he retouches images and collaborates in the various tasks of running a small business in partnership with his wife, photographer Trina Koster (https://trinakoster.com). Scott works in Guelph, Ontario, where he lives with Trina and their two dogs.
