Since the radar feature I got a decent number of new followers here. I’m not sure how many knew about my art before or not, but for those who didn’t thank you for liking my work enough to follow it.

For those who don’t already know me, I’m Samantha. I’m an illustrator of Eastern European and Jewish descent who makes her living off of editorial (what does that mean? I do art for magazines and newspapers. Some clients include Eater, Outside Magazine, The Marshall Project, New Republic, The New York Times, and Scientific American), media (what does that mean? I do art for books/comics ((though I do not make comics)), like covers or promo art. Some clients include BOOM! Studios, DC Comics, Hank Green, HarperCollins, and Penguin Publishing) and personal illustration work. I do not really do personal or private commissions (just a mention since I do get asked it a lot). I occasionally do gallery exhibitions, mostly with Spoke Art and Gallery Nucleus. I’ve worked a lot of odd jobs to get here from food service to design to social media management to education, but in the summer of 2020 I finally went full time with my freelance art career!

While from California, I have lived in Oregon for many years now. I own a black cat named Seti and many plants. I’m actually in the dead middle of a move right now, so I really hope to have more pets and greenery in the near-ish future. Maybe a dog sibling for Seti? My personal interests/pursuits usually revolve around zoology, botany, pomology, matcha, oversized sweaters, dog watching at the park, walking for miles and miles, sustainability, and social equity. I suffer from chronic migraines and an anxiety disorder.

My personal art is heavily focused on symbolism and the human form which I use to explore concepts of vulnerability, identity, anxiety, repression, and freedom. I am currently focused on pushing the space between line work, shapes, and light to create a sense of fluidity, color, and form. My main medium is working digitally, at the moment with photoshop and an old wacom intuos tablet. I do however occasionally work traditionally with gouache paint and poscas.

Anyway, thanks for sticking around I’ll be posting more art after my move. In the meantime if you like what you see you can always buy my work at my Inprnt and Etsy!

Honestly, I just think my cat Seti is the cutest. He can be a loaf, he can be tall. Sometimes his tongue sticks out.
