Scott Harris, illustrator & painter of Character Art School


Scott is a concept artist and designer who recognises the value in failing - it’s one of life’s greatest teachers. He specialises in Anime and Manga style art, and is the founder of the Character Art School. Scott teaches his drawing style and techniques online, sells prints of his art and works with clients on a freelance basis.

Scott promises that he is easy to work with (which is apparent from his friendly interview;-) He also likes eating fruit loops and drinking coffee;-)
