Mick Scott, aka Plebo, always saw himself as a visual artist. He trained at art college in Manchester in the 1970s and began his career by teaching art before moving into youth work. He continued to make his own drawings, paintings, and cartoons. He began writing during the first Covid lockdown, when he found using words was a far more immediate way of expressing his feelings and frustrations with current directions in politics and society. Since then much of Mick’s work has fused his visual art with the written word. He regularly contributes images to Bylines Cymru and other publications in the Bylines Network.
