Scott Miller Portfolio: Drawings

by Richard Whittaker, Apr 2, 2006


 

 






San Jose artist Tony May introduced me to his former student Scott Miller. “I think you’ll find his work interesting. It’s, ah, sort of obsessive.” I think that’s what Tony told me. Something about his description intrigued me and one day I found myself at Miller’s house where delightful paintings and artwork abound. Miller’s wife, Janet Burdick, and his two children, Max Rain and Zoe Rain, also draw and make art in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Wit is clearly a family value along with a serious appreciation of craft. Miller received his MFA in painting from Claremont Graduate School in 1982. Along the way, as if it needed to be mentioned, Miller has spent a fair amount of time as a technical illustrator. Each year the family produces a calendar with drawings like these, which they send out to a lucky group of friends. —rw
