Hi. My name’s Mike Scott. I live in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. Thanks for checking out my site.

A small selection of work:

  • Follow the White Rabbid – 2D pixel animation for Ubisoft’s ‘Rabbids’ IP, through an EU studio ‘Noodles’. Was chosen to be screened at the Annecy 2019 Awards Ceremony in the official program.

Why ‘Mikdog’? It’s been a nickname of mine since varsity, and without really intentionally doing it I created loads of my social media profiles under the name. Also, I’ve been drawing this one dog since high school, so I figure – that dog, is Mikdog. 🤷‍♀️

I chuck frisbee, play a bit of drums, jam some videogames and make animations for my YouTube channel.
