Scott is a cartoonist who was born "on top of an arctic glacier", exposed to "high levels of intense radiation", and made his way to becoming a well-known artist. He creates a funny comic series called 'The Argyle Sweater' filled with absurd situations and silly humor. Why 'The Argyle Sweater', you may ask? Well, because "'The Argyle Cummerbund' was taken and 'The Argyle Girdle' just sounded plain silly."

Scott Hilburn grew up in Garland, Texas. After graduating from Argosy University, he began working towards his master’s in clinical psychology/professional counseling. However, the artist decided to interrupt his studies to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a cartoonist.
Scott can be considered an old wolf in the comic world. His work is found in such giants as LA Times, NY Daily News, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Dallas Morning News, and more! People seem to enjoy Scott's edgier and darker humor, that's why he's so popular.
In one of his interviews, the artist revealed that he gets ideas for his comics from pop culture, historical references or "presenting animals or fairy tale characters with human settings and real-life experiences". Some of his ideas come from something he has overheard his kids say or do, but not as many.
Scott shared that Larson was one of his biggest influences. Besides that, he also read New Yorker cartoonists like Sam Gross and Tom Cheney. "I was always impressed at how a single panel cartoonist could say so much in just one frame – especially when the humor is inferred and required some thought on the part of the reader. That 'A-HA!' moment is something I try to create in my own cartoons."
