Justin "Scrappers" Morrison | Creative Worker: Artist, Designer, Copy Writer, Illustrator, Stuff

Scrappers is the wild child of Portland publishing. Not content to simply work as Art Director at the Portland Mercury, he channels some of his surplus enthusiasm for outdooring, nudity and storytelling into the new Stay Wild magazine and the adventures that fill it.

Your manifesto / rules to live by / motto:

Stay Wild!

How would you describe your work if you left out all the boring parts?

Fast, dirty and cheap. Never late, always early.

Pen, pencil or stylus?

All that stuff and tooth and nail.

Be honest: how often do you clean your desk?

Every day and I try to keep a zero inbox with my email too. No joke!


Inside or outside the lines, Copic markers are the way to color your designs. The masters of pigment at Copic got the ink formula right 25 years ago, and haven't changed it since. The alcohol-based ink won't tear up the page the way water-based markers can, so the colors can be layered and blended more easily.

Go on, test it yourself with this 12-marker set that contains all the basic colors you'll need. The ink formula is low-odor and waterproof.

Tired of throwing away your markers when they run dry? The ink and nibs on Copic markers are replaceable, so the body can be reused again and again.
