Highly-polished, otherworldly digital imagery from Finnish illustrator and artist Sami Saramäki.
For anyone looking for contemporary, digital illustration to bring their editorial a conceptual, digital twist, look no further than Sami Saramäki. The Finnish illustrator crafts vast, gleaming cities and landscapes rich with detail and always with a large dollop of spirited playfulness. “I like to experiment with different technics and I like to do detail rich illustrations,” says Sami. “I’m very interested in lights and shadows and forms and surfaces. I love to combine typography with the illustration and I'll do that whenever I can! My style is overall "semi realistic" but mostly I like to do a bit more abstractive stuff than full realism.” A perfect illustrator to commission for highly-polished, otherworldly imagery. “Editorial commissions give me most freedom. I love it when I can check what the context is and then decide what would be the best approach -in my opinion this is how I do my best work. I like cover arts a lot also because of the same reason.”
