SAM WEBER written by Dixie Rosa Fernandez

Alaskan illustrator Sam Weber works part time as assistant art director of the OpEd page at the New York Times. He attended the graduate program for illustration at The School of Visual Arts and his clients include The New Yorker, Nylon, Play Girl, Forum Magazine, The Stranger, Bitch!, to name a few.  His creative process begins with pencil and paper and keeps it very personal since he rarely reveals his first drafts to anyone. Most of  his work is ink, water colour, and acrylic, which is then scanned and finished in photoshop, but he generally wants to refrain from using a computer less and less, as a matter of preference. Weber intentionally intertwines themes of childhood scary stories and fairy tales in what he shows us. And his ideal work environment is an old pencil factory in Brooklyn he shares with other illustrators, which he depicts as having magnificent exposed brick and peeling paint falling. What  motivates him most is getting to see other great works from other artists. But what’s most intriguing is Weber’s love for fairy tales  and scary stories and how these themes come off the page as somewhat surreal in their fusion. Dixie
