You might’ve noticed some of Sam Spratt’s Photoshops, drawings and illustrations on recent posts already, but we wanted to take a moment to officially introduce him to you. He’s our contributing illustrator and will be sticking around for a while.

Sam Spratt is someone who has doodled and scribbled for a majority of his life, yet he made the decision to go to the Savannah College of Art and Design not because of his love for art, but because of a woman of all things. In the end though, he still wound up loving the field and made his first first oil painting about 3-4 years ago and his first digital painting about 2-3 years ago.

Since then, Spratt has won a few awards including ones from Adobe, the Society of Illustrators and American Illustration, been commissioned by Razer to work on some art and drawn Adam Frucci riding a space raptor.

He’s also provided art for many Gizmodo posts, such as these:
