Years ago, Scott Gustafson began a series of paintings depicting Santa Claus' annual Christmas Eve journey. When he realized that he was going to be painting the same eight reindeer over and over, he decided to sculpt a model reindeer to use as a studio reference - "Which," he says, "turned out to be a very good investment of my time." Scott referred to this sculpture when he painted as "Up, Up and Away," this limited edition canvas.

"Up, Up and Away" captures the exhilarating moment when Santa Claus and his helpers take flight from the North Pole workshop to begin a night's worth of Christmas delivery. Even the moon delights in their voyage as they ride off merrily into the sky. "Up, Up and Away" makes a heartwarming gift for Gustafson collectors, Christmas enthusiasts and anyone who remains a child at heart, still listening for sleigh bells on Christmas Eve.

Scott Gustafson
Storytelling through pictures has always held a certain fascination for Scott Gustafson; be they the moving images in animated cartoons, or the epic illustrations of N. C. Wyeth. Upon entering the Chicago Academy of Fine Art, Scott was 99% sure that he wanted to become an animator, but it was that 1% that ultimately drew him more and more into the world of stretched canvas and oil paint. "As an animator, "Gustafson says, "your contribution to a given film is, by necessity, limited to whatever character you've been assigned. But as an illustrator, you're responsible for locations, sets, costumes, props, lighting and character designs, not to mention the overall mood and emotion of a given painting. It's about the best job there is." Over the nearly twenty-five years that span his career, he has had the opportunity to fulfill commissions for a number of varied clients and publishers such as Celestial Seasonings, Playboy magazine, Saturday Evening Post, The Bradford Exchange, DreamWorks and The Greenwich Workshop. His illustrated books include The Night Before Christmas, Peter Pan, Nutcracker, as well as two original titles, Animal Orchestra and Alphabet Soup. His newest release, Classic Fairy Tales, was recently awarded a Chesley award for best interior book illustrations from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists and is currently in its third printing.
