They say no man is an island. Well, Sam Island is technically an "Island" and he's also technically an amazing editorial illustrator. I can't seem to compare his work to anything else I've seen. His color palette is something out of Doctor Seuss and his art style is akin to balloon animals. His work is simple and straight to the point, yet you won't completely get it without some deep thought. I think that's what makes any successful artist and Sam appears to have mastered it.
