Sam Hiti is a machine with his brush and ink. The combination of looseness and confidence in his mark-making is powerful, and his years of drawing practice are evident. Sam’s story of being the solo writer, artist and self-publisher of his own work is inspiring to do-it-yourselfers and control freaks everywhere (which should include many animators).

His website is here and his most active blog is here.
