Rates are scaled for enterprise, small biz, & startups: competitive, negotiable, and depend on the length of commitment.
I use the header "Pop Art · Propaganda · Iconography" because it says everything about me. I'm trained in the art of Propaganda (advertising), submersed in Iconography (culture), and in my free time, I make Pop Art (definition: inspired by consumerist culture, draws from any source, ignores existing cultural hierarchy).​​​​​​​

STATUS UPDATE:
(March 3, 2022 - 3 minute read)

Thanks for learning more about me here. I use this space to let people know what's going on with me currently, what I'm working on, who I'm working with, and what I'm doing for/with them. You might also learn what I'm reading, what I'm watching, the podcasts I'm listening to, and random other things here.

I'm currently tidying things up with Ezra Arthur and have been looking for work. I'm talking to Bryan University in Arizona about teaching a couple of design classes, via zoom, for their upcoming curriculum and I'm being considered for a Senior A.D. role with Gila Rivers Resorts. Both are exciting opportunities. I also recently interviewed with a toy company in Los Angeles, called Spin Master, for a Senior Art Director role in their marketing department; I'm waiting to learn more. ​​​​​​​
I’m still in Phoenix, Arizona, and trying to stay put. I've discovered so many bucket-list hikes here, I'm trying to stay and take it all in. 
"everything meme" words and art by Scott J Bailey
In a Chord - 22 x 30-inch watercolor painting, 1998

abstract watercolor painting expressing the four powers of "The Medicine Way."

If you do not already do so, consider following one or all of my Instagrams: ONE. TWO. THREE. FOUR.

Here's a painting I created last year, which was described in a previous show's "artist statement" and sold before I even painted it.
"Pixel-Bear is Gay! And That's Okay with Tinkerbell" - 22 x 30-inch watercolor painting, 1998
Pixel-Bear is Gay! And That's Okay with Tinkerbell — 30" x 40" watercolor
"The Master and the Margarita" and "Slaughterhouse Five" are both gathering dust on my nightstand—begging for my attention. Yuval Noah Harari's "Homo Deus" and "21 Lesson for the 21st Century" are both on my list of things to do.

I still think what Eric Weinstein has to say about genius—versus excellence—in the workplace, is one of the most important conversations to be had.
Just a few more words about me: being an independent thinker and a (non-active) Mensa makes me an excellent problem solver. But it also makes me a good future-problem identifier. I equate professional experience, and skill, with climbing a mountain—once you get to the top, you can see everything quite clearly and you can even help other people reach the top themselves. It's not that I've stopped learning, it's that learning easily fits into the process of creating new things.

I like solving problems alone or on small teams. I prefer short-term projects (2-6 months), but I am currently considering long-term roles based on the fit and pleasure I will derive from the work. 

I thrive best on very small and executive teams and in environments where a number of problems need to be solved in a variety of ways. I also do very short-term projects for start-ups and smaller businesses, both project-based and hourly, whichever they're most comfortable with. I grasp challenges easily and I enjoy learning new things, which helps me hit the ground running.

Please use the references link at the top of the pages here to talk to real people about me. Next to that is a link to a bullet point resumé.

I hope you enjoy having a look around. 

Warmly,
Scott

Incidentally, a fan of my first employer in NYC in 1991, Mad Dogs & Englishmen, created an exhaustive retrospective of the firm and its work. My fingerprints are on some of it. Here's the MD&E link!!
