Like the majority of art and illustration in my life, I usually run across things while searching for inspiration during my late nights. A few weeks ago I was reintroduced to the work of Illustrator Sam Weber.
Born in Alaska, Weber grew up in Deep River Ontario, Canada. He attended the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary. He later relocated to New York pursuing graduate studies at The School of Visual Arts.
Weber’s work can best be described as strangely hypnotic. You can’t help at first glance but to stare intensely at each image, while trying to decode what makes each image so aesthetically pleasing. He often uses a limited color palette adding to the sense of subtle mystique.
Recently, in conjunction with the the Folio Society and the estate of William Goldin, Sam illustrated a new addition of the classic novel Lord of the Flies.
