Artist, Illustrator & Character Designer out of Austin, TX

Hello! I’m Sam Soper and I am super happy you’ve decided to check out my art site. It’s still very much a work in progress, so bear with me on any weird looking design stuff.

As of right now, this site is kind of a catch-all for all the various information I am gathering up for my art business, like commission rates, announcements, and my CV. A place where I can direct people when they ask me to draw them like one of my French girls. I’m also slowly working on adding past artwork, illustrations, and character designs to the portfolio.

Someday, I’ll actually find the time to organize and design it all better for a much nicer user experience, but for now I appreciate your patience.

RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 4

As RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 4 was airing, I got the idea to do a portrait of each queens as they were voted off, featuring my favorite looks from the season.
