I've been participating in Illustration Friday on and off for the better part of a year, and through the site I've stumbled on some truly amazing artists and have devoured their blogs and images. I thought it might be time to start sharing their work on a semi-regular basis, and not just greedily keep them all to myself.
So, here's Sam Caldwell:
Sam is 19, he lives in Bolton, England, and has a lovely blog called Umbrella Head where he shares more wonderful images like these ones. I love the textures he creates out of simple pencil lines and brush strokes, and am slightly mad about his colours. He is going to art college in Edinburgh in the fall to focus on painting and illustration, and I wish him all the best.
