Author and Artist
Brandon James Scott (b. 1982) is an artist and designer that works in a variety of fields including illustration, graphic design, books, animation, and fine art.
His passion for creating characters and stories and his creative experience in the field of animation leads most of his work towards imaginative and whimsical storytelling.
Brandon is currently working at Guru Studio, where he is the creator and art director of Justin Time, an animated series in production of its second season. He is the co-creator/art director of the Squidgy iPhone app, and art director of the Justin Time interactive website and related apps.
History and travel inspire creator Brandon Scott to stoke kids' imaginations. "I love the idea of seeing all these cultures and places and, as a preschool show, exposing little kids to some of this exciting stuff like different countries and different cultures, giving them a taste for it," said Scott. "It could be very cool and important. Maybe later when they're learning about it in school they'll remember seeing it in an episode of Justin Time."
In addition to this project, he’s worked with Guru as a designer for a number of commercial clients such as DDB New York, Ogilvy, Family Channel and Kraft. Previously, Brandon was an illustrator at JibJab Media where he helped illustrate the children’s book, “The Longest Christmas List Ever”. He graduated from Sheridan College with a BAA in Animation in 2007.
When not working on commercial projects, Brandon spends his time making pictures about animals, robots, ladies, and forests… mostly.
