One of the great pleasures of having your art friends and family work in your book is the reaction they can have to your world.
Scott Hampton is one of our dearest friends, but he is also one of the busiest artists we know. Constantly up to his eyeballs in paint and comics, he’s currently working on the new Neil Gaiman graphic novel with P. Craig Russell.
We sent him his illustration brief hoping he could find the time to do it. Literally 2 hours later, he sends in his illustration, completed and ready for print. After reading the book, he put aside his work, jumped into the deep end of the pool, and turned in an amazing page.
It was great to see his reaction and our pleasure to post it today.
Scott is a diverse artist currently working in Chapel Hill. He is known for his work on Batman, Books of Magic, Simon Dark and the Upturned Stone. He also plays a mean game of pool and is amassing quite the collection of Disney shirts. Visit his website and say hello!
