Scott started doing illustrations and design back in 2004 and has since then been involved in numerous projects; both as a freelance designer and with Stockholm Design Lab, where he’s currently employed. The projects have reached thru many different categories; Scott has worked with everything from basic illustrations to major corporate identities, as well as motion graphics and magazine layouts. Scott is always trying to break new ground with projects in all forms, shapes and sizes.

The piece is an experiment in colour, shape and light created in two stages; the “background” was created first and then the actual illustration was applied onto the striped background.

Work description:
I tried to express movement and rhythm through lines on a still image. I didn’t start any draft for this work, just kept on drawing along with the flow. The result is like a non-existent force field between the hands. This work is a practice for lines and movement.
