Scott Hattox is a San Diego artist who has spent a lifetime obsessed with comics, animation and science fiction – the dominating subjects of his portfolio. Scott spent most of his early career creating paintings for friends and producing requests commissioned by word-of-mouth. In 2014, he began showing his material in small galleries and underground art shows, and in 2015 he began exhibiting his paintings at Comic-Con International.
Scott’s penchant for capturing the spirit of Star Wars, Anime, Marvel and other “nerdy” enterprises made convention settings a perfect fit. Visitors to his booth don’t just get a view of his unique and intriguing creations, but also an engaging experience with an enthusiastic artist who is always eager to chat about anything from brush stroke technique to the infamous “Han shot first” debate. Scott has subsequently shown and painted live in conventions around the country that specialize in science fiction, horror, video gaming, and comic books.
In 2017, Scott began working with renowned pop-culture artist Rob Prior, and has been able to collaborate with his mentor on multiple pieces, broadening both his technique and subject matter. Scott is best known for his large-scale paintings of iconic characters – a veritable rarity today, as most artists on similar subject matter have fallen away from classical techniques and produce digitally. He paints in multiple mediums, primarily gouache on watercolor paper and acrylic on canvas. He works out of Rob Prior Studios in Los Angeles and his at own workshop, Bay6Studios in San Diego.
Scott is always eager to discuss commissions or to speak about art in general. He can be followed on Instagram at ba6scott, on Facebook at Scott Hattox Art, or can be reached directly at email@example.com
