Artist of the Day: Samuel Hayes

Oakland, California-based Samuel Hayes creates wild animated experiments and comic drawings with iconic cartoon shapes and electric colors. His approach to subject matter has an equal sense of expressive freedom and abandon. His stated influences include Max Fleischer, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and the Silver Surfer.
