Hey! I'm Sam Hall.

I graduated from Halifax's NSCAD University in 2017 with a B.F.A. in Fine Arts and minors in Illustration and Art History.

I work in a variety of mediums that often overlap; most of my work incorporates both digital and traditional media. I am proficient with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash, as well as watercolours, oil painting and screenprinting. I have enough Toon Boom experience to help out with shadows.

I’m a full-time background artist at Copernicus Studios, currently working on a well-loved children’s show. I worked previously on the Netflix Original Trailer Park Boys: the Animated Series.

I sometimes table at local conventions, where I sell t-shirts, dice-bags, and prints. I also draw 1$ lightning commissions before attendees’ very eyes! This year you’ll see me at Hal-con, Geequinox, Aubcon and DCAF.

Outside of art: I raced sprint kayak for the Canadian National Team for several years. I listen to a lot of podcasts. I like to cook. I have a pet lizard. It will not come as a surprise to you that I play a lot of Dungeons and Dragons.
