Thank You


Thank you for allowing me to join all the wonderful talent here on the Picture-Bookies blog site. I had seen your site a long time ago and was thrilled when Paige Keiser mentioned that you might someday be looking for new members. Thank you Paige for suggesting me.

A bit about myself: In 1988 I graduated art school and immediately opened up my own freelance studio. After devoting my efforts towards the humorous greeting card world, in the late 90's I tackled the children's book market. I was blessed when Golden Books for children offered me four titles to illustrate. This then gave me the opportunity to work with KRBY Creations and I have since had two of my own self authored/illustrated books published with them.
While working on detailed caricature illustrations, humorous (and juvenile) greeting cards and other freelance assignments, I'm currently working on a series entitled the MISHAP MONGRELS. Each anti bullying Mongrel title deals with embarrassing social issues about pants wetting, wind passing, nose picking, throwing up, lice, and so on. Currently a manuscript is being pitched to Random House and I'd be more than happy to post about it's success or failure if anyone is interested.

Once again, I'm very excited to be here and look forward to getting to know all the awesome artists represented.
My best,
Scott Nelson
