American Illustration Cover by Sam Weber

It’s funny to think that my favorite contemporary painters, James Jean and Sam Weber, could also be considered illustrators. Their work is some of the most amazing stuff being produced today as evidenced by the work above that Sam Weber did for American Illustration. It looks like he was pretty much given complete creative control over the general packaging of the book including dust jacket which unfolds into the bee image. Honestly these are some of the most amazing images I’ve ever seen. When I first saw the images I think I may have gasped and then proceeded to stare at them for 10 minutes. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do, I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.

    I’ve always admired his work. I got a chance to meet Sam at his studio earlier this year and he was very polite and unassuming. He deserves all of the accolades he gets.

    James Jean and Sam Weber are awesome! And I’d love to have a desktop sized image of that bee/honey dippers image. So sweet.

    Also, the Sam Weber link isn’t – it should be:

    Simple typo.

    It’s hilarious that they could be “considered” illustrators. Considering that James Jean was and Sam Weber is an Illustrator.
