About Samuel and his work.

Hey, I'm Samuel!

Since childhood, I've been enthusiastic about drawing and graphic design, creating characters and comics in my spare time. When I was accepted to the UniSA Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication) program, I was given the chance to pursue design, and in second year, began exploring illustration, becoming particularly fond of character design and visual development art for film, games and television, gaining inspiration from artists such as Chris Sanders, Nico Marlet, Brett Bean and Stephen Silver, as well as film studios like Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Blue Sky and LAIKA.

Now that I have graduated from University, I am working as a freelance illustrator and character designer, continuing to work on personal projects in my spare time.

Always eager to learn, I attend uninstructed life drawing sessions every week, and I'm constantly drawing from imagination, photo referents and from life in sketchbooks.

I'm always keen to meet people and love talking about art, films and stories. If you do too, get in contact with me on Facebook or Tumblr (links on the side of the page), and if you want to work together, send me an email at samuel@samuelreadart.com!
