I received a copy of Amazing Everything: The Art of Scott C., a perfectly-sized hardcover that features over 100 of Scott C.'s illustrations. If you're a fan, it's a no-brainer at only $16 at B&N and Amazon.
In the book, he talks about his formative years:
In third grade, most of my art projects would hit a point where I would ask the question, "Shall I add that last thing that shall put this piece over the top? This is a fine stitching of a dragon, but shall I add that last thing? The sword in its belly with blood pouring out?"The funny thing is, I did win an art contest in approximately third grade (I won a Jimmy Z skateboard deck at a local clothing store), by drawing a dragon with a spear in its belly and blood pouring out. Is this something every boy draws?
Anyway, Scott's going to be signing at Gallery Nucleus and Cotton Candy.
And finally, this is a great photo of Scott from the opening of his Zombie in Love show at Gallery Nucleus:
