Scott Campbell (Scott C)  is a maker of paintings, illustrations, comics, kid's books and video games. He studied illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, focusing on comic and children’s book illustration.  Soon after graduating, he began at Lucas Learning as concept artist on children’s video games.  Four years later, he joined Double Fine productions as Art Director on such games as the critically acclaimed Psychonauts and Brutal Legend.  Alongside this career in games, he has published numerous comics and created paintings that have appeared in galleries and publications around the world. Some of his most notable projects include the GREAT SHOWDOWNS series, Igloo Head and Tree Head series, Double Fine Action Comics, Hickee Comics, the children's book's Zombie In Love and East Dragon, West Dragon, and Psychonauts and Brutal Legend with Double Fine Productions. The book Amazing Everything: The Art of Scott C collects many of his paintings over the past few years. Scott lives in New York City.
