Every one of us has to bring his own toothbrush

Maybe only the few people who saw (and enjoyed) Hair will be impervious to today's illustration. Yes, sharing the same air, the same food and the same bed is fun when you're young but it's not what we're concerned with right now, so please focus. What's great about today's art is that it makes you go "eew" and "omfg lololol" at the same time, and it was made by Scott Wold. And it's a great combination don't you think?

 

Hi Scott, it's great to have you on FML today. First present yourself to the FML audience, wait, what am I saying, to the world!
I'm Scott Wold!

How old are you?
26

Where do you live?
Roselle, Illinois
 
What's so great (and lame) about this place?
Roselle is great because it is a quiet, safe, small little suburban town that is about 45 minutes from Chicago. So you get both the peace and quiet of the suburbs, and the excitement, culture and activity of the city. What’s lame about Roselle? The winters, Chicagoland winters are brutal, but they toughen you up.

What do you do for a living?
Illustration and a little Graphic Design

Is it enough to pay the bills?
If you have little to no bills, but I am looking to change that. I just recently decided to pursue this full force. Illustration has always been my first passion, but it’s tough to get going, but when it pays off, it will be so much more rewarding, at least that is what I am hoping.

What's your story?
I lived in Roselle my whole life, went to Northern Illinois University to get an Illustration degree, then to the Art Institute to get a Graphic Design degree. I have known that I wanted to get into this business my whole life, but I am not the stereotypical art student. I watch sports, drink beer and love progressive metal bands. However if I’m not doing one of those things, I’m probably watching cartoons, go figure.


What are your projects?
Right now I am drawing political cartoons for websites, finding freelance work wherever I can, and building my portfolio in as many different ways that I can. I’d like to continue to work on editorial illustrations, maybe see if I can get a publication, or a comic. I naturally put a lot of humor into my illustrations, so I like to think that people would like to look at them at a little deeper level than just pretty pictures.

 

What inspires you?
Finding brilliance in creativity. It can be found everywhere. The perfect sentence in a book, the way a certain scene is lit in a movie, or a site gag in a cartoon. It’s those moments where I go “That’s genius,” or think to myself “I could never come up with that.” It then inspires me to try and come up with my own.


What makes you laugh the most?
My friends. It’s great to try to one up each other with a joke, even if that means just pushing out a bigger belch than the guy next to you did.

Why did you choose this FML?
It was truly a disgusting FML moment that implanted a disturbing visual in your mind that I couldn’t pass up illustrating.

When they said "present yourself to the world!" they should've spelled it Wold so it could be a pun. :D
