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”

Court Square Flea Marketing

Last weekend, I took a stroll with a couple of friends into Long Island City.  The destination we were aiming for was located on Jackson Avenue, in the heart of the Court Square district and opposite MoMA PS1.  As we got closer and were right outside the gate to where we intended to be, aContinue reading “Court Square Flea Marketing”

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”

Floral [&] Design

As much as I love the entire process of creating digital art, especially the end result that leaves you without having any brushes, cups, rags, or spills to clean up — I’m a clutz with most things, paint is no exception, I get it everywhere — I began over the last year to really miss theContinue reading “Floral [&] Design”

This Box. (aka my first venture in children’s book publishing)

When the idea for this book came to me, my original plan had been for it to be an eBook. But bumps in the road with the programming of the ePub file (anyone who has ever had to create an ePub file or any form of computer programming knows of the frustration that goes withContinue reading “This Box.

#SamSketches – 2013 in review, things to come in 2014

2013 has brought a year of great growth built off of previous years’ quiet planning, a number of seemingly small moves finally adding up and just an overall mindset of — “every little bit counts.” A movement forward, no matter how tiny, is still a step in the right direction; the accumulation of these steps placing youContinue reading “#SamSketches – 2013 in review, things to come in 2014”
