About Scotty Roberts
I am a designer, Illustrator and writer of fiction & non-fiction, occupationally hovering in the advertising ghettos of Minneapolis & Saint Paul, Minnesota. But that is merely the “normal” side of me. I have had an illustrious career that sometimes seems and feels more the stuffs of fictional characters than the down-to-earth roles I play in my day-to-day existence. I have been places and seen things that most people only experience vicariously through books, movies and other sources of the wild imaginative. Yet, I have been there, in those exotic, alluring, haunted places, experiencing what some might only find in the realm of their daydreams… or nightmares.
Being an academician, I maintain my pragmatic persona and a healthy skepticism. But I must admit that I have been touched by the mysterious and the metaphysical. In my adventures, I have found that Horror meets History, and the diaphanous world of “gods, demigods and spirits of the dead” – as 4th century BCE Egyptian historian Manetho said it best – is very real, ebbing and flowing, in and out of the land of the corporeal.
