Vince Musacchia was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He attended the Art & Design School in Manhattan and the School of Visual Arts. Vince’s talents have been utilized in several different areas of the visual arts. His earlier work was for the ad agency, Gem Studios, where he drew storyboards, comprehensive sketches and finished arts. Later, at Saatchi and Saatchi Advertising, Vince’s uncanny ability to encapsulate story and product enabled him to become a senior designer. This talent eventually took Vince to printed texts, where his artwork has accompanied publishing efforts by Golden Books, among other large publication houses. Vince’s skill in these varying areas where not only artistic ability, but knowledge of the art’s potential audience, gained him exposure at Warner Bros with the Scooby Doo series. With a piece such as “Haunted House” or “Slow Boat To Terror,” there can be no mistaking the fear Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Thelma and Daphne experience. With his Looney Tune art, Vince also encompasses the use of light and character placement. But it is with the idiosyncrasies of cartoon greats as Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, Wile E. Coyote and Marvin The Martian that make his Warner Bros work stand out. Vince finds that he owes his inspiration to an equally eclectic grouping of artists. Vince lists a plethora of artists ranging from Van Gogh, past and present DC Comics inkers, to the Pixar company as his inspiration. Being a pastel and water color painter in addition to a character illustrator, there is little doubt Vince’s work suggests as wide a breadth as do the artists he admires.
