My Life in Paper and Piles

I somehow always find myself in a situation of coming and going. I have for a long while. My room and workspace is in a constant state of disarray, with the somewhat hopeful thought it will be alright: this constant back and forth is only temporary. The result of this is my life is madeContinue reading “My Life in Paper and Piles”

SamSketches: A 2015 Calendar

Now Available It was last year around this time, that I came up with a Christmas gift idea for my older sister, Sylvia.  After a fun filled evening (as usual) with her in which we joked about how horrible she is with remembering dates, I decided to create for her a personalized calendar to supply herContinue reading “SamSketches: A 2015 Calendar”

Hung Up.

2014 continues to be the year of new experiences and checkpoints reached.  I am going to be sad in a few months when it comes to a close, but excited for all the possibilities that 2015 will have in store for me.   Most recently, I sent out an application via email with some jpegsContinue reading “Hung Up.”

Aspiring [Featured] Artist.

See, I am quite a literal person when it comes to that word. as·pire  (-spr) intr.v. as·pired, as·pir·ing, as·pires 1. To have a great ambition or ultimate goal; desire strongly: definition complimentsContinue reading “Aspiring [Featured] Artist.”

#SamSketches: a coloring book

Most of the digital work I do is used for, well, digital media and it is not often that I get to see what the art looks like on paper.  It is even rarer that I get the opportunity to see an abundant amount of it all printed together, side-by-side.  And so last night, whenContinue reading “#SamSketches: a coloring book”

Current Project. #WIP

As usual, as soon as one project is finished I have another one (or two) lined up. This one actually has been a little bit of a current addiction that has distracted me from my painting obligations… oops. BUT progress is progress and as long as everything is done by their due dates, no oneContinue reading “Current Project. #WIP”

Peace. Love. Cookies.

It’s that time of year again! Yes, that’s right — forget the actual holidays, my new card is out and going into the mail once the snow and ice allow me to get to the post office.  This limited edition print includes warm holiday greetings from yours truly and my fancy schmancy signature inside, withContinue reading “Peace. Love. Cookies.”

Down, but not out (anymore)

Now it is very widely known Sandy visited this area, in fact she made her way into affecting almost 20 states (I googled) but I am not going to list the grim details of her visit.The media is doing enough of that for me I think, and for once they’re actually pretty accurate.I will sayContinue reading “Down, but not out (anymore)”

When autumn comes it doesn’t ask

I really enjoy everything about autumn. It’s the perfect time to turn into yourself. Usually I hit a drawer’s block around this time of year, which always balances out with my sudden urge to read any and every book I can get my hands on. This year I’m getting through it with more ease thanContinue reading “When autumn comes it doesn’t ask”
