Brandon James Scott

Brandon James Scott is a Canadian artist and storyteller in Toronto. Since graduating with honors from the Animation Program at Sheridan College in 2007, he's pursued work in the animation world and is currently the Creative Director of Design at the award-winning Guru Studio. He’s worked as a designer, art director, and director on animated projects with many of the largest clients in the industry.

Brandon is the creator and production designer of the hit animated series, Justin Time. The series landed Brandon a Canadian Screen Award for Best Preschool Series in 2014, and he was also nominated for both a Daytime Emmy Award and an Annie Award in 2013. As an extension of his animation career, Brandon writes and illustrates children’s books, contributes illustrative work to various media publications, and regularly guest lectures at his alma mater.

In love with both drawing and exploring since childhood, Brandon spent his early years split between creating characters and launching day-long expeditions in forests. These early experiences shape the narratives Brandon creates today, and he hopes to make art that no one has seen before—art to inspire his audience with wonder, charm, and delight.
Brandon lives in Toronto near High Park with his wife and son, who are his first and most important audience for everything he creates.
