Lo­ca­tion: US Web: Em ail: samgua­ me­dia: Wa­ter­colour, acryla-gouache Steal­ing essence from dreams and trav­els, Sam’s strange en­coun­ters have built them­selves into com­plex, myth­i­cal, wa­ter­colour worlds. “The most fre­quent ques­tion I’m asked is, ‘What’s the story be­hind this? I want to know more about this char­ac­ter’,” Sam says. “I’m al­ways brew­ing th­ese sto­ries, and I’m be­gin­ning to write them out to ac­com­pany my il­lus­tra­tions.”

Lit­er­a­ture, po­ems, folk­lore and even spir­i­tual sym­bol­ism found in the cards of the Tarot have pro­vided in­spi­ra­tion for the illustrator. “Vis­ually I’m in­flu­enced by many artists that fo­cus on pat­tern or line and main­tain an odd or oth­er­worldly essence,” she re­veals: “Arthur Rack­ham, Su­lamith Wulf­ing, Klimt, Mucha and Moe­bius to name a few.”
