Can’t wait to start shooting with my new toy, the Fuji X-Pro 1 with 35mm 1.4 - I have heard and seen a lot of great things about this camera. This is going to be my everyday camera, so be on the look out for more personal work coming soon!

In short: Reblogs and Likes of this picture are each entries to have me paint a personalized portrait of you.
In slightly less short: Longtime followers are no stranger to these contests but for those new to this or me, I’m an illustrator (my work: www.samspratt.com ) who has worked with National Geographic, Janelle Monáe, Childish Gambino, FX, Game Informer, Angry Birds, Wall Street Journal, among others – creating album and magazine covers, advertisements, and posters – but a big part of me being able to do all that has been you sharing my work over the last 3 years. As my small way of paying that forward, I’d like to paint for one of you as I would for my clients, but ya know … for free. Maybe you want that regal portrait of you in a velvet smoking jacket to hang over your mantel, maybe one of your loved one, favorite character, or perhaps you just want me to paint you however I see fit (warning: this will 100% involve dinosaurs) – if you can think it, I’ll probably paint it – and I’ll work with you to make it something special.
As usual I’ll also be sending signed prints and haikus about your eyebrows to extra winners. The contest will stay open for about a week then I’ll randomly draw winners. You can enter on facebook and twitter for extra entries but be cool and don’t spam your followers.

30 Things I've Learned in 30 Years



That’s right, I turned 30 last week. Not quite sure how I feel about it just yet. I guess conflicted. We rented an amazing house (Lakey Peterson’s surf fans) in Montecito for the weekend and went wine tasting around Santa Barbara. Even got a private tasting at Saarloos & Sons. At the…

I like being a groomsman! @gq #GQ #tux #tuxedo #wedding #groomsman #menswarehouse
I’ll be a groomsman in my cousins wedding this Friday. It will be nice to be on the other side as oppose to being behind the camera. I thought I would treat him with a fine bottle of scotch. #scotch #Scotland #liquor #Balvenie #doublewood #12years #weddinggift #groomsman
