◆ Official Minecraft Art
Thanks to my Minecraft fan webcomic at WonderCraft.net I was recruited by Notch at Mojang, the creator of the game, to develop a few official pieces. I was invited too, to travel to the very first Minecon (2011) in Las Vegas and had the chance to meet the wonderful team and all the crazy players and draw for them.
“I first learned of Sam and his art about two years ago when he made a promotional poster for Mojang’s Minecraft. I’ve been a fan and a follower of his work since then. This hardworking artist and cartoonist always have something new and wonderful to look at. His art is always infallibly joyful, passionate and charming. His lines have the confident flow of someone who’s drawn his fair share of comics. This fact paired with a flawless sense of color makes for art that makes my heart smile every time I see it.
I heartily recommend SamCube, both for his art and for sharing a beer with, which I intend to do again in the future.”

◆ Other non-official Minecraft Art (contest and commissions)
Since 2011, and after the success of the 1st Minecraft poster, I was reached by individuals, enterprises and big and small bussiness, so they could commission me art inspired by Minecraft. Services as game hosting, dedicated websites to the game, and personal commissions. I realiced more than 600 small and big commissions. That was a crazy time.
