Sam contacted us through the website after having seen the front cover for The Reluctant Prophet, and once we saw her portfolio - we knew that we wanted to work with her in the future!
Her images are beautiful, haunting, charming and quirky. We asked her to tell us a little about herself, and this is what she said:
My name is Samantha Vinci. I am a designer and illustrator living in New York and a graduate from the Illustration Program at FIT and SCBWI children’s book summer intensive with Pat Cummings.
Creating unique and beautiful images and designs has always been a passion of mine. My illustrations are a blend of hand drawings and vector graphics. I like to use digital media to recreate the atmosphere of classic illustration in a fresh way and make work that feels modern and traditional at the same time. If you have any questions or would like to contact me about an assignment or learn more about my work you can send me and email at email@example.com or message me on Behance (http://www.behance.net/svinci) and be sure to check out my tumblr, http://www.tumblr.com/blog/svinci.
And, if you are interested in purchasing prints or original work I post announcements when I am selling at different shows or festivals and you can always go to http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/VinciPrints.
