When I started my art education, Scott Robertson was the only instructor who guided me to find clarity as to why I pursued a career in the Entertainment Industry. His teachings, techniques that he shared, and guidance, created a guideline for me to follow as a developing artist and designer. Scott is an amazing instructor, mentor, and friend.

I was lucky enough to take Scott's classes when he was teaching at Art Center. A large amount of what I know about design and its process comes from him and his effective teaching ability. He doesn't just give you a demo-- he gives you the ability to think and inspires in you the ability to teach yourself after walking away from the classroom.

Having Scott as a teacher was one of the high points of my design education, the foundation skills I learned from him transformed the way I think and were instrumental in me becoming the designer I am today. His professionalism and dedication to his craft inside and outside of the studio are a continual inspiration to me, I cannot recommend him enough!

Scott Robertson is as good of a teacher as he is a designer. Scott's is a rare mind. His knowledge is vast and his artistic draftsmanship puts him among the world's elite designers. I spent 6 months as an intern with Scott. I came away with the technical skills and contacts to land me a job as the character designer for the Guitar Hero franchise. I should have been paying him.
