Turtlewurx
John David Scott
Artist
United States
My name is JD Scott. My friends call me "Turtle". I’m (among other things) a Graphic Artist in Nacogdoches, Texas.

I'm co-owner/operator of Highland Motorworks. We do signs, graphic design, & custom motorcycle graphics. I've spent nearly half my life as a vinyl slinger (Sign man), I'm also proprietor of TurtlewurX Productions TM (Though, to be honest, I've only had MAYBE 2 or 3 dozen commissions. It definitely don't pay the bills, but it's a nice hobby & it's fun to brag about.) I specialize in the reconstruction of medieval artifacts -mostly weapons-, though I’ve worked all over the spectrum... From digital art to leatherwork. I’ve actually had some of my work displayed at both the Longview Historical Museum & the Tyler Library.......... I’ve been in the art industry, in one form or another, nearly my entire life... Mostly I’ve gravitated towards advertising since it’s the most stable way to earn a paycheck & still get to be kind of artsy. I’ve written & edited radio ads, done graphic design, logo design, vehicle graphics, played at some photography, had some of my poetry & short stories published in small press, & I’ve made more signs and banners than I care to think about..........

I love to try my hand at any art form I come across. Not that I’m very good at ‘em all, but I still like to give it a shot. My only real regret is that I’d LOVE to sing or play an instrument, but I can’t even carry a tune in a bucket...........

I’m a twenty year veteran of the Society for Creative Anachronism, and sometimes dabble with the Early American Buckskinners. (historical reenactment groups)..........

I'm President and Chief of Clan MacRaith which is (again among other things) a Motorcycle Association. (We're also a western martial arts light cav. unit, a paintball team, and historical reenactors to name but a few of the things MacRaith does.)..........

Contrary to the rumors, I actually AM a Conservative and Christian. (GASP!) I just happen to be surrounded by off-the-beaten-path weirdness.
