Artist of The Month February 2013: Scott Modrzynski

It’s the first of the month again, and our next installment of Artist of the month is upon us. This time, we present Scott Modrzynski. We’d also like to thank Scott for providing us with another great bio!

Scott: “I was pumped that Rick and Dan asked me to be the Artist of the Month here at sCrypt Comics. I started writing a standard third person bio, and there is no way for that to sound anything but douchey, so if it still sounds that way in the first person, I guess I’m just a douchebag.

I’ve always been artistically inclined. Whether I’m any good at it is up to your eyes, but the fact remains, I enjoy viewing, studying and creating art. Mostly just the last part, though.

I went to Providence College in Rhode Island and accidentally spearheaded the “Digital Imagery” concentration to the Studio Art major, along with two classmates. After that, I bounced around, literally and figuratively, as a mascot for the Frisco Rough Riders, a graphic designer for a huge ad agency in New York City, then a small one, followed by a few well-paying freelance gigs, a three-year stint with the NHL’s New Jersey Devils where I combined graphic design and mascotry, and ultimately landed back in New York at the first ad agency as a freelancer after throwing tee shirts into the crowd at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

Luckily, I’ve got the time to pursue other passions like moonlighting as a marathon runner (50 races in 50 states is the goal; 7 down so far – NY, NJ, OH, FL, RI, NV, MS), daylighting as a beach lifeguard every summer, and moodlighting notebooks and bristol board for my own graphic novel, which has no timetable. A neck injury and the big three-oh tag teamed to end my hopes of becoming a pro wrestler. I’m too old and brittle for huracanranas now.

My art made of food, Foogos, has been featured all over the web, notably on Yahoo, Robot 6 and slashfilm, as well as in Sports Illustrated (October 31, 2011). Lately, I’ve picked up a lot of pop culture painting commissions, and plan to showcase a series of unsold paintings at the Asbury Park Comic Con on March 30th.”

sCott (See what I did with his name there), illustrated the story “Annabelle & the Prince” for sCrypt Comics’ Bones At Breakfast: In Case Of Werewolf. And he loves cereal.

Check out his gallery of work below, as well as his site http://www.foo-gos.com for some mind blowing and amazing artwork done with food and more!


sCrypt Comics Teams up with Foogos

If you are unfamiliar with the work of Scott Modrzynski, then you need to check out what you are missing.  A while back he contacted me saying he was interested in being a part of sCrypt Comics’ third graphic novel “Bones At Breakfast: In Case Of Werewolf.”  I checked out his artwork (all done with food mind you) and thought to myself, “How the hell is he going to do this in a graphic novel?”  Damn did it look cool.

He chose the story of “Annabelle and the Prince.”  It is my take on the classic Beauty and the Beast story, and we decided that it would play out over seven pages.  The food part of it won’t be included in the graphic novel, as it would prove too expensive to create, but Scott is doing his work another way.  By combining digital art with photography, he has posted on his blog his progress.  Check it out at the link below, and be sure to get your copy of the graphic novel (which includes many more artists) when it comes out this fall.
