Sam Dunn is a 24 year old Illustrator based in East London. She grew up in Hartlepool, a fading seaside town in the far North East of England and spent her weekends exploring the dense forests of the Lake District National Park. Whilst studying at Cleveland Collage of Art and Design in 2007, she began creating Gig posters and T-shirts for both local and national bands and continued throughout her time at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She graduated in 2011 with a 1st class honours in Graphic Design and Illustration. Her client list ranges from independent musicians and collectives to global brands and charities.
Her work is delicately crafted by hand with pen and ink then coloured digitally with many layers of found and forged textures, aiming to preserve the warm and tangible appearance of traditional media. When she isn’t drawing, Sam enjoys riding her bike, drumming and adding to her unnecessary collection of baseball caps.
