My name is Sam Kaufmann, currently a full-time illustrator and small business owner. I was born and raised in The Netherlands, graduating from AKV St. Joost in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Illustration.
The drive behind my work is the desire to create new worlds to discover and get lost in, reflect on and deal with very real and honest emotions, or to simply make people smile and experience pure enjoyment.
Recognisable by the charismatic vibes and well thought out use of color, my work spans from illustration to merch design, to concept art and even murals. Well versed in the traditional painting medium gouache as in rendering designs digitally, my aim is to find that perfect match between projects and their execution.
Occasionally you can also find me tabling at conventions, helping out at art festivals or napping in the sunshine.
Feel free to contact me with any questions!
