My name is Sam. I live in Seattle. I’ve been drawing since I was a little kid. I’ve done a few camps but am mainly self-taught. I do character design and also love creating stories for my characters. Recently I’ve been bored of drawing and have branched out to other art forms like photography, crochet, and pottery. I love designing and creating things, there's something really special to that.
This is a photo of my friend Betty. I love the contrast of the tree branches, and how the sharp shadows fall on her face is simply beautiful. The day this was taken, we found a spot under a tree in Seward Park. The tree's branches touched the ground, creating a home within it. Everything was perfect, beautiful, and peaceful that day, and this photo captures that.
I live in Seattle by Seward Park and it's one of my favorite places to go. The final image I chose is a picture of Seward Park taken from my house. I’ve lived in this house for the majority of my life, and it’s the view I've looked at for all that time. I chose this picture because I liked the sort of eerie vibe it has. And the best surprise, this is actually two pictures on top of eachother, called a double exposure. I love doing both taking pictures and actually printing them. I think they're both very different experiences and take different types of skills for each. Aside from photography I also like to draw, crochet, make jewelry and pottery. I enjoyed developing a better understanding of my personal style, my motivation this spring wasn't the best but I'm still happy with my work. I also have gained more skills and a much higher understanding of how to print in the darkroom.
