I had the opportunity to work with Scorpio on 13th Night, an original comic book creation project that celebrated and taught readers about Shakespeare's First Folio. Scorpio worked tirelessly, doing three months of work in two. Despite this truncated timeline, Scorpio produced a stunning work, that he meticulously researched, integrating past and present, blending Shakespearean works, characters and events into one truly beautiful work.

Scorpio Steele is a genuine pleasure to work with! Through the years, I have commissioned him for two feature film posters and on both projects he really took the time to understand my vision and how to best portray it within his artwork.
His deep understanding of art techniques, styles and genres gives him the ability to design multiple options in a timely manner for his clients to consider. He is good to accept direction while the work is in progress, but he is also able to considerately point out perspectives his clients may not be aware of and explain why and how these may enhance the final product.
He was always on time with his work — many times ahead of schedule — and always returned my calls or texts in a timely manner. I would recommend him on a professional level, but also — and even more so — on a creative level.

"What can we say about Scorpio Steele? The man is as good as it gets. One of a kind wedding favors for the guests? Check. Entertainment for the whole party? Check. A smile that just won't quit? Goes without saying. His work speaks for itself, but we would just like to say Scorpio's work is worth every penny, and we couldn't be more happy to recommend him to friend or foe (you know who you are)."
