Originally part of a collective contribution from illustration agency TOY, which has since disbanded.
Long ago, cartoons had power ballads as theme tunes and computer games came on cartridges that you had to blow on to get them to work. This was the time when Scott Balmer was introduced into the world, and into the UK to be precise. At a young age, he knew that he wanted to do something in the creative field, considering the amount of time he spent scribbling and drawing all manner of things from made up monsters to devices of shear awesomeness which were able to break through space and time itself. First he considered going down the animation route, then briefly flirted with the idea of graphic design, but then he settled on the world of illustration where anything is possible with the power of the mind. Scott usually works with many different styles and mediums but mostly focuses on creating beasts of magical and mystical wonder. His approach to his work is very retro in style, but it is built up to accommodate a more contemporary setting. His work has been seen in many a newspaper and magazines. He particularly likes to draw hands, which is like Kryptonite to some artists, as he enjoys the many different ways and gestures that they can be drawn. A purveyor of those electronic games, which sometimes help feed ideas, above all he also enjoys the virtue of special arrangement found in the game Tetris.
