Contest closes in December 14th at midnight, GMT. Winner will be announced soon after and I’ll finish your commission in time for Christmas.
I waaaaant this.
I did this piece a little back for Tor . “Foundation”, by Ann Aguirre, is a first-love story between two boys but they are both stuck in bunkers hiding out from a zombie-like epidemic. You can read the story here.
First year after RISD, I was a bit worry that I would be stuck drawing animals and kids forever, as most AD hire illustrators for what is in their portfolio. So I really have to thank the courageous Irene Gallo for seeing my dark-side and letting me “attack” zombies.
I felt like this story calls for a rugged image and my usual lines are too delicate for the job . Immensely excited by this new challenge, I decided to experiment a bit and eventually went with a new approach of drawing the zombies with graphite/charcoal.
I hope you guys like!
This is ridiculously awesome.
The Seven of Swords relates to deception, shirking responsibilities, and being a lone wolf.
I just pre-ordered the whole pack. Cannot wait until November.
Now I have no money.
I drew her as a gift for my boyfriend’s birthday. I think it came out pretty well!! :)
This is amaaaaaazing.

Why all this? Well, you’ve gotta write a big check with quite a few zeros at the end of it to commission art from me—and call me crazy, but I firmly believe that in a perfect world, people *should* get to own art AND do things like “pay rent”, “eat food-like substances on occasion”, and maybe even “continue to live”. Two of you can do that, the rest of you… you’re screwed. Sincerely, <3 Sam
