I am a published comic book artist and am available for new projects. I have self-published several series while attending grad school at the Academy of Art University, where I received my MFA in Illustration in 2012. My current series, Father Robot, published by 215 Ink, is available on Comixology, and prints of all my published issues are available at the “Store” page on my website. SamGarlandIllustrations.com is also a good place to see examples of published comic pages.
While science fiction is my genre of choice, I also have experience in biographical, mystery, and horror comics. I love superheroes as well, and am willing and able to draw anything.
I typically charge per page for finished black & white artwork for comic books/graphic novels. A completed page includes all panel layout, composition, pencil work, and inking. I prefer to work traditionally, with pencil/pen/ brush on 11×17 bristol board, but am happy to draw entirely digitally if you prefer. If colored pages are desired, I usually color digitally, but also offer hand-colored pages if you prefer. I am very happy to provide estimates for any project, which are very realistic and strictly adhered to.
