Lou Scarborough (1971)

Lou Scarborough (born May 27, 1953 in Sumter, South Carolina,[1] USA; died August 5, 2013 in Glendale, California),[2] was a professional traditional 2D animator, storyboard artist and comic artist who lived in Pasadena, California.


Lou Scarborough was born in Sumter, South Carolina, but moved with his father and siblings to New York City, a place he didn't desire to be. There he would work on several animation projects, including his first animated feature, Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure, along with friends Dan Haskett and Tom Sito.

In the 1970s, Lou and Dan Haskett would visit the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan, showing their amazing drawings who would inspire many of the attending students at the time (including a young Sito). Lou would even teach young comic artists at the Joe Kubert's school in Dover, New Jersey.

He would eventually move to Toronto, Canada, where he would work for Nelvana Enterprises, Inc., continuing to move to the West Coast via Seattle until he finally reached and settled in Hollywood, California, where he would work for a myriad of television cartoons and animated features, and commercial companies such as Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Disney merchandising. Lou would eventually win an Emmy for his work in Warner Bros. TV Animation's Taz-Mania.

Lou debuted in comics with DC Comics' New Talent Showcase #15 (1985) and kept a hand in comics ever since.[3] As an established comic artist, Lou became an (on-and-off) member of the Comics Arts Professional Society (CAPS), and would continue to be so until his ultimate passing in 2013.


Lou Scarborough passed away in August 5, 2013 in Glendale, California, USA, of metastasized colorectal cancer before he could start chemotheraphy. His last request the day prior was to ask fellow animator Marc Schirmeister to have his art sketchbooks brought to him so he could distract himself drawing while being treated.

After his passing, his body was flown to New York for burial at the Scarborough family plot.
