suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
si SCOTT: An ongoing exploratory personnel project developing a series
of illustrative studies of flying insects.
The idea came from looking at Insects that fly. When looked at and studied
closely they look like they shouldn’t be able to fly at all – they look almost other worldly.
I am fascinated by flight but didn’t want to do anything as obvious as a study of birds
or butterflies etc…
sP: what were you reading/listening to/watching while developing this project?
sS: I am currently listening to Tv On The Radio, Bjork and an amazing record by Edward sharpe & the Magnetic zeroes.
I read a lot of fact – especially about the 2nd world war, I seem to have a morbid fascination with that time in history.
sP: whose work is currently on your radar?
sS: This sounds really bad but I don’t really spend a lot of time looking at others work – I have my favourites and that does me fine – Vaughan Oliver, Farrow Design & Marion Deuchars have always been amongst my favourite designers/illustrators. I am not really that concerned with what others are doing – I tend to concentrate on what I’m doing and making it the best it can be.
