I have a confession: I did not take art in high school. I could draw a little bit before, but when I took a life-drawing class last summer a whole new world was opened up to me. It’s with this newfound appreciation for the arts that I can fully marvel at Sam Spratt portrait illustrations which are phenomenally realistic. He’s created works for Gawker and Gizmodo as well as created artwork for album covers. Every time I see his work, it inspires me to pick up a pencil or paintbrush and just have at it. You can find more of his work and buy his prints, here.
Do you have any illustrators you particularly look up to or find inspiring?
