There are few people working in the comic book industry that are quite as prolific as Skottie Young
. Young has been working in the industry for over ten years now and worn many hats; including writer, penciller, inker, letterer and colorist. Although he has done many different jobs, Skottie Young is primarily known for being an artist for Marvel Comics
. The Illinois based artist has also done work for Warner Bros.
, Upper Deck
, Mattel Toys
and more! His artistic style stands out amongst most others, making his work easily recognizable.
Young began his work in comics like most other artists; by setting up a table at conventions and hoping for the best. Luckily CB Cebulski
, who was at the time an editor for Marvel Comics, stumbled upon his portfolio and fell in love with it. Young and Cebulski became quick friends and worked on a few small indy projects together before Cebulski managed to get Skottie a gig doing the artwork for a fill-in issue of Marvel’s Iceman
series. After that Young continued to work on comics full time at Marvel; the rest, as they say, is history.
Currently, Skottie Young is working on Ozma of Oz
for Marvel Comics. He also recently released two sketchbooks (Stuff
respectively) and a collection of his original online comic strip The Adventures of Bernard The World Destroyer
; all of which are available on his website
Below is a gallery of some of Young’s artwork for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy!
