Afterward - Sam Weber

Last Thursday, The Stanford Perrott Lecture Theatre at ACAD was near full of students, faculty, and alumni who were lucky enough to be given a glimpse of what is behind the work of illustrator Saw Weber.

I remember a quote by Norman Rockwell where he mentioned that the power of his work wasn't so much in his depiction of the picture, but rather the sentiment behind it. I would argue that this is the same for all successful illustrators, and in fact, is not limited to the art itself. The power of Sam Weber's work is not only on the surface, but in the heart and intellect of the artist that fuels it. Check out his work, and if you get a chance to hear him speak it is well worth it.

The following are images from a 4th year illustration class.
