Samuel B. Thorne Interview
Samuel B. Thorne is an Illustrator and designer inspired by the worlds of vintage animation and comic books with psychedelic colours and general weirdness.
I am allergic to both fun and facts.
After mucking around with graphic design and textiles in college, I realised that what made me happiest was drawing, so I went back to the, urm, drawing board.
Vintage animation, adverts and comic books and imperfect printing methods.
I have a day job as a junior creative director which takes up my weekdays before dragging myself home to work on freelance stuff. At weekends it's a mix of drawing, wishing I was out with friends and then beating myself when i am out with friends because I am not drawing.
Get away from the desk, go for a walk, and look at other artists work to get envious.
I won't name names as I have been lucky enough that almost every client has just wanted my vision undiluted and that really is the dream!
All work in drawn with ink on paper, using a brush pen, sharpie and a fine liner. I then scan this in and colour digitally using Photoshop.
Street art like graffiti and stickers, weird shops full of curios and of course, the Worldwide Webarooney.
Have a safety net, be prepared to be crushed and have excellent time management skills. Very boring, but essential.
