What is Samalou?
A world of giggling lines and explosions of color
illustrations • paintings • drawings • pure joy
My art is influenced by a delicious cocktail of Seussville poetry, Peanuts characters and 70s cartoons, spiked with the art of Dali, Derek Riggs, Rick Griffin, Al Jaffee, and Kenny Scharf. I spend most of my time scratching lines on paper, laying colors down on canvas and manipulating vector points in the computer, all of which open the doors to the mischievous characters and unbalanced world floating around inside my cracked cranium.
I'm available for logos, greeting cards, character design, magazine covers, editorial spot illustration, children's picture books, advertising illustrations and illustrations for the web - commissions of any kind.
