Sam Weber currently works out of New York with his equally talented illustrator wife Jillian Tamaki. His work is some of my favorite because of his amazing depictions of emotion. Not only hauntingly beautiful the subtlety in his work is awe inspiring. He is a big influence in some of my current work, so how could I not share him?
Check out some of his interviews at Heavy Backpack, Lost At E Minor, and Amateur Illustrator.
Oh and here is a nifty video from 2010 about his cover for Shadow Rising.
