Hello! My name is Sam Shainoff and I'm an Illustrator & Designer. Originating from a small town in northeast Ohio, I moved to Columbus to attend the Columbus College of Art & Design where I majored in Illustration and graduated with a BFA in May of 2021.
My art journey started when I was old enough to hold a crayon, and I grew to be enamored with animation. I would spend hours drawing all of my favorite characters and learning how to mimic their styles. In 2016, I started drawing fanart of My Little Pony, and it become my first endeavors into professional art! I won a T-shirt Design contest and had my shirt sold in HotTopic! Later, I found myself in a trading card contest and was printed in the Enterplay My Little Pony TCG. You can also finds some of my official Warframe products on ForFansByFans, licensed by Digital Extremes.
Currently, I enjoy experimenting with Illustration through color, texture, and technique! I love working with vibrant palettes and soft visuals. I also love to world build and explore possibilities through visual development, as well as character, background, and prop design. Seeing art come to life through animation is incredibly thrilling!
