“Air Powered, The Art of the Airbrush” was Scott’s creation and first book. As a scholarship student at Art Center College of Design (and later an instructor), Scott was an airbrush artist. “I was absolutely passionate about airbrushing, and just loved the incredible posters and album covers of the time that were produced by airbrush artists. To me they were rock stars. Ironically, many of them worked with and hung out with rock stars. Scott had the idea of a coffee table book on airbrush artists, and formed a company with two other young entrepreneurs to prepare the pitch. Simon & Shuster, Crown, and Random House all bid on the opportunity with Random House winning. The book went on to sell more than 250,000 copies, hard-bounded in three printings.
