"Neil deGrasse Tyson" - Illustration by samspratt
Finally got around to wrapping up this portrait of everyone’s favorite astrophysicist. With his huge impact on new generations of aspiring scientists, I knew I wanted the background to be children’s space drawings. With my 6 year-old niece’s planetary masterpieces as inspiration, I did my best imitation with my left hand. (prints available here)
My Electric Lady cover showed up in 8-track form in Janelle’s awesome new video (and my favorite song on her album)

"Gina Torres" Study - Illustration by Sam Spratt
In the midst of an album cover but had a bit of time to flesh out my sketch from the other day.
I normally don’t eat baked goods, but my 6 yr-old niece made me m&m cookies & said “uncle sam, I used extra sugar so you can paint EXTRA”

A painting I did of the King of Pop a couple years back.
Another early sketch from my project with actress Gabourey Sidibe.
A quick illustration I did the other day for Variety about History Channel.
The frequency in which I’ve had to prance around my studio waving sheets to get wooshy cloth photo reference for paintings is increasing at an alarming rate.
Painting I’m working on while I have a brief window between album covers.
In my studio with Oscar nominee and all around badass human: Gabourey Sidibe.
