Julie loves the work by Merry Hoffmeyer of Heartfelt Handiwork. Merry is a Clawson, MI artist, who repurposes buttons in her lovely embroidered works.
Julie also likes the drawings of Scott C.
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. 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.
Julie loves that he started out drawing at such a young age. Also a fun piece of information is that while Scott lives in New York City, two of the books he has illustrated were written by a Michigan author -- the Zombie Love books by Kelly DiPucchio!
