Uncertain of what livelihood could be provided through art in the 1970s, Scott applied his artistic technique toward mechanical engineering design first finding himself with John Deere. By way of Clark Equipment in Michigan, he made his way to Peoria's own, Caterpillar Inc. After 20 years of design in the Track Type Tractors devision, he is now ready to pursue his art in retirement.
