Today’s artist is pop-surrealist Scott Musgrove. Musgrove studied illustration and painting at Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio. After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts, he moved to Seattle, Washington where he created comic books that were published by Fantagraphics Books and Dark Horse Comics. Musgrove’s work has also been featured in numerous comic anthologies. His animated TV series – Fat Dog Mendoza prompted him to move to Los Angeles to work with the Cartoon Network Europe, Sony Wonder and Sunbrow Entertainment.
After his stay in California, Musgrove returned to Seattle where he spends his time painting, illustrating, and sculpting his “previously undiscovered animals.” He recently published his full length book “The Late Fauna of Early North America” that “features lush, highly detailed landscapes and up-close encounters with all manner of strange and beautiful creatures.”
Musgrove’s work has been exhibited in various galleries in major cities across the United States. His next gallery show is at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York City in May 2010. To see more of Scott Musgrove’s unusual yet lovable creatures, visit ScottMusgrove.com.
