Scott Nychay
  BIOGRAPHY

Scott Nychay inherited the passion for art from his father who was a gifted painter. The Chicago native developed that raw talent at Drake University and Columbia College where he studied design and journalism.

After graduating, Nychay landed the rare job of political cartoonist. Quickly, his work was picked up by the Sun-Times Features Syndicate. Shortly there after, he was selected to study newspaper illustration at the preeminent school for journalists; the Poynter Institute for Media Studies.

In 2006, Nychay became the only cartoonist nominated for the prestigous John Fischetti Award while working for a publication with fewer than 40,000 readers. Later that year, he received first in the nation from the Associated Press Sports Editors for his graphic work. The visual journalist also is author of two books.

Today, the Chicagoan has created his own studio where he is working with companies and organizations that have a positive impact on the lives of others.
