Interview with Illustrator Sam Island

Since beginning commercial work in 2012 for some of the biggest names in news — from the new york times to monocle magazine — illustrator Sam Island has become best known for his smooth style of clean lines, vibrant color palette and simply-drawn figures. riddled with sarcasm, the Toronto-based artist’s professional work provides a ironic slant on otherwise serious topics intended for publication, like social anxiety and weight loss. recently, island teamed up with portfolio hosting platform format on the series ‘how to live like a creative‘, an interactive infographic which visualizes the daily habits — hour by hour — of photographers, designers, illustrators, visual artists and filmmakers around the world.
