I'm Pat Redding Scanlon and I want to be your favorite artist.ABOUT ME
Rat Fink artist extraordinaire BIG DADDY ROTH called me
"A CATALYST" and Beauty Bar/Barmacy's DEB PARKER
has called me "NYC’S BEST-KEPT SECRET.”
I do provocative designs for T shirts, posters, tattoos,
Most of my best stuff combines lettering and likenesses
(caricature) in a cartoony way. My influences change from
day to day.
I have rich experience in sequential storytelling. I’ve worked at Marvel comics, MTV animation, edited years of syndicated comic strips and pop culture novelty books.
I’ve drawn cartoon maps, super detailed animation backgrounds, worked storyboard corrections in the style of other artists and obsessively choreographed 2D-animated crowd scenes.
I have probably worked on a book project with one of your favorite cartoonists or pop culture personalities.
I’m obsessed with vintage signage and early cartoons. I have done caricatures at parties and have volunteered with school kids to work on murals, auction projects, cartooning and quilt design.
I am expanding into textile design. Yes, I WILL design your tattoo.
If you need unique design or illustration work!
