Editorial Reviews

Review

“Scott Campbell really is some kind of genius.”

~ Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy


“The best thing about Scott’s work is that it’s so damn cute, clever, and funny! It’s the perfect combination of whimsy and weird that make these adorable little scenes play out with such witty and awkward social commentary.”

~ Tara McPherson, artist


“I tried to pull together the essence of Scott C. once, to make a perfume called ‘Essence of Scott C.’ I mixed together extreme pleasantness, enthusiasm for beverages and other things, and a dash of somber, far-away looks. It smelled terrible. Amazing Everything does it much better.”

~ Tim Schafer, president of Double Fine Productions


“Amazing Everything should be put into a time capsule and shot into outer space for Martians to discover and understand American pop culture. Scott Campbell is our ambassador to geeky awesomeness.”

~ Sanjay Patel, artist and supervising animator at Pixar Animation Studios


"I think Scott C is some sort of magical time traveler. He is seemingly able to instantly revisit those childhood days of effortlessly filling up sheets of paper with endless armies of little characters living out their little lives in their little worlds. To know Scott C's work is to know Scott C -- each carefree brushstroke is infused with joy, optimism, and the spirit of having a good time with your pals."

~ John Martz, DRAWN!


“Art for me is about how it makes you feel. And Scott C's art just makes me friggin happy. Like, hurt your cheeks from smiling happy. AMAZING EVERYTHING is a big ol' book of pure, unfettered, goddamn merriment.”

~ Scott Mosier, SModcast, Clerks, etc.


"Scott C. makes art so pleasant and engaging that you feel right at home in the scenes he creates, and you're really happy to be there too. He can paint these entire worlds he's put together in his mind, they're amazing and vibrant and full of life. For some people, building worlds in their head can seem like an insular exercise, but Scott may as well paint a great big welcome mat inviting you in."

~ Kate Beaton, Hark! A Vagrant

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Length: 0:51 Mins
Collected within the pages are beautiful watercolour illustrations of all things cute and funny. You'll see references to pop culture, like the cult tree with iconic movie characters. Some are single panel of cuteness, like flying cavemen, stacked up sandwiched tanks. His larger pieces of work are more elaborate, like the home slices with silhouettes of objects, such as a tank, with a network of tunnels with amusing characters living inside.

I like his use of watercolours that gives his work a very textured look. The colours are pastel, sometimes going to the earthly tones.

The book's 128 pages, hardcover.

This is an imaginative and amusing book. Recommended to those who like cute stuff and pop culture.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

I have been a long time fan of Scott C's work but I bought this book for my 5 year old daughter. I wanted to inspire her to think outside the box when she draws. Yes, she's 5, but I wanted her to know that it's perfectly normal to draw plants coming out of people's heads, or umbrellas, or igloos... or anything. She could draw houses that don't look like houses. She could draw rainbows and happy faces on everything. She could draw whatever she wanted to draw, and not just what she thinks of as normal. Or rather, I wanted normal to include a world like Scott C's.

Not only was the art wonderful, the text was brilliant. She loved hearing about Scott's childhood and seeing some of what he drew when he was little. She loved all of it, especially the big pictures filled with a million details. Oh, and the Cute Hunter.

I highly recommend this book for anyone that wants their kids (or themselves) to think a little differently.

Scott C has a distinct brand of fun, goofy illustration. Cute Hunter is brilliant. My favorite "coffee table"/art book so far.
