Gustafson, Scott

Property categories:




Scott Gustafson's earliest artistic ambition was to become an animator. But by the time he entered high school, he became acquainted with artists from the "Golden Age of Illustration," and great illustrators like N.C. Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, Maxfield Parrish and Arthur Rackham opened a door onto a world of beautiful images that continue to inspire him to this day.

Lingering dreams of making animated films, however, led Scott to major in animation at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. It wasn't until after leaving art school that the possibility of a career as a freelance illustrator began to truly appeal to him.

Over the nearly thirty-five years that span his career, he has had the opportunity to fulfill commissions for a number of varied clients and publishers such as Celestial Seasonings, Playboy magazine, The Saturday Evening Post, The Bradford Exchange, Dreamworks and The Greenwich Workshop.

Some of Scott's illustrated books include The Night Before Christmas, Peter Pan, Nutcracker, as well as two original titles, Animal Orchestra and Alphabet Soup. His book of Classic Fairy Tales, released in the fall of 2003 by The Greenwich Workshop Press, was awarded a Chesley award for best interior book illustrations from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists.

In the fall of 2007, Scott's Favorite Nursery Rhymes from Mother Goose, was released as a companion book to the fairy tale book by The Greenwich Workshop Press, featuring over 45 color illustrations. This book won a Silver in the category of Best Children’s Picture Book by the 2008 Independent Publisher Book Awards.

Recently, he has tried his hand at writing and illustrating, and his first novel, Eddie: The Lost Youth of Edgar Allan Poe, was released by Simon & Schuster in August, 2011.
Scott's latest book, Classic Bedtime Stories, has just been released by The Greenwich Workshop Press. The eight classic tales are accompanied by fifty, full-color illustrations, and the book took Scott about two years to complete.
