SCOTT C’s home slice

I’ve been a long time fan of Scott C’s work, a few months ago I wrote about his friends with ET series. Well Scott is back with a new series he is calling “Home Slice.” Wether you are an eskimo, a caveman, or even an blood vessel, everything has a place that it calls home. Scott Campbell gives you a peek into the homes of these often forgotten about creatures.  His watercolor paintings never disappoint, his childlike imagination teamed with years of practice with a paintbrush make for his largest works to date. Even though my apartment already contains 2 prints from Scott, I couldn’t resist Ice House #3 and can’t wait to hang it on my wall. You can check out all of the paintings from the show at Gallery Nucleus’s site, as well as pick up a print or two for your own home slice.

IF YOUR FRIENDS WITH ET then you’re friends with me

Comic maker, illustrator, and absurd genius, welcome to the world of Scott Campbell. I would love to hang out in the mind of Scott for a little bit, maybe have some lunch with the windmill head people, pick some monsters from the garden, or just sip on a slurpee with E.T. I often find myself with creative block, but I have the feeling that his head if just crawling with fantastical images faster then he can get them down. His prints are super affordable so this leaves you no excuse to own your favorite one. I happen to have a Friends with E.T. print that is jonesing for the perfect frame. His work is available at Gallery Nucleus and Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight. Check out his blog, and be sure to read his web comic over at doublefine.
