“changing the world through creativity, hope and love…”
Scott “Scooter” Burroughs is a painter, illustrator and designer working in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He graduated with his BA from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California in 1994. Upon graduation he worked as a video game animator and conceptual artist for Sega before being hired by Walt Disney Feature Animation. Scooter worked 10 years for Disney as an animator on movies and mentor for new artists. His credits include: Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan, Tarzan, Fantasia 2000, The Emperor’s New Groove, Lilo And Stitch, Brother Bear and several shorts. When the Florida animation studio closed its doors, nearly 20 years ago, he moved back to Colorado and began a career in illustration, fine art painting and design.
Scooter has always loved the mid-century modern commercial style from the 40’s through the 70’s and his distinct artistic style has been formed by a love and passion for the images from that era. Scooter's fun and playful paintings and illustrations celebrate the style of the past and give life to a modern-day retro style of all the things he loves most.
Scooter and his wife Chrysti partner with an amazing organization called Acres of Love, where their mission is to rescue and care for AIDS Orphans and those with special needs in South Africa. “I get so much joy and excitement in my heart about changing the world through creativity, hope and love. Whenever you add my art or merchandise to your collection a portion of what you spend goes to Acres of Love, and I love that I get to partner with my AMAZING collectors in bringing hope, love and a family to these young children! It’s my hope that people’s hearts fill with joy knowing not only are they adding to their collection, but they’re literally changing the world!”
Scooter is married to his high school sweetheart Chrysti and has two amazing sons, Maximus and Titus, and two lovable, crazy cats, Butter and Sushi.
