Scott Vogel is a California native who has enjoyed art his entire life. He began drawing at age 5 and was encouraged by friends and classmates who would “commission” their own pictures from him. By junior high he was forging the ‘Nike’ logo onto his and other students’ cheap tennis shoes, and by high school, he was tattooing the Iron Maiden mascot, ‘Eddie,’ onto the arms of fellow students with a ball-point pen.
After high school, Scott abandoned drawing for a while as he focused on other artistic pursuits, such as acting and writing, but he never left it for long before picking up a pen or pencil once again to keep the skill alive. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Scott discovered a great niche for his drawing via storyboard art in the entertainment business. He did this type of work for a number of years and for such Hollywood notables as Ben Affleck and Faye Dunaway as well as ‘The Bernie Mac Show.’
In the years since, Scott’s taken up painting and sculpting and is now enjoying these forms on a regular basis, alongside his ongoing desire to tell stories and make movies. His art is now hanging in the homes of several L.A. residents and can often be glimpsed on the walls in the background on episodes of ‘It’s Always Smoggy In L.A.’, a web-show he writes and directs which appears on the website ‘Funny Or Die.’
