The painter is now residing in Miami , though he spends some time each year working in New York City and Buenos Aires. I included him here because of his series "Email Art".

An especially charming aspect of Sam's work is that everything is done exclusively with free software. The characters are modelled and rendered in Blender, with layout and speech bubbles in Inkscape and image editing in GIMP- all running on Ubuntu Linux.
Austrian artist Teodoru Badiu describes himself as being"...well organized, competent, good natured and insanely dedicated...". I found his work to be simply stunning. I was so amazed by the power and beauty of the images that I asked my girlfriend to come sit besides me and as I looked at them.
