Skottie Young works in the comic book industry since 2002, when he realized Legend of the Spider-Clan for Marvel Comics. From then on, he worked on several projects (The books of Oz) and lots of cover for the publisher. In 2014 he worked as a solo artist on the Rocket Raccoon series and in 2015 he realized his first creator owned series for Image Comics, I Hate Fairyland.
When the session is over he comes to me, begging for pardon for being late.
We decide to get out from the hell pit that is Piazza Napoleone’s pavilion and sit into a bar, drink something and talk. We order a non-alcoholic drink (for me) and a Moijto (for him), we sit and then he starts asking about me and my life.
Skottie is an enthusiastic person, curious, his drawings reflect perfectly his vivacious personality, a man full of passion and talent, but really human and humble. Waiting for our drinks (gently offered by him), completely fascinated by him and perfectly at ease, I start asking him some questions about his life, his work and his career.
