When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Sam Weber

Sam Weber is a prime example of an illustrator whose work rises above it's immediate commercial purpose, able to stand alone as simply stunning visual imagery. He incorporates a variety of media including photography at times, although he rarely identifies his process and so I'm unable to give you specifics on each image. But browsing through his website and blog you'll see various combinations of photo transfer, monoprint, watercolor, acrylic painting, and plain old drawing. But it's the end resuls that count. No matter the method, he manages to create images of atmospheric surrealism while retaining the strong graphic presence that makes it so commercially viable for print. All in all this an artist who will be around for quite some time and worth keeping track of.
