True passion and talent here from Antwerp’s very own Sam Vanbelle, whose fun, plentiful work has been adorning pages of your favourite magazines for a long time now. Embarrassingly, we’ve never featured them before on It’s Nice That which means we’ve got to make up for old time now by gushing about how great they are even more than normal (if that’s possible?)

Sam's work is a slick, colourful map of their brain, revealing how observant they are whilst demonstrating a happy instinct when it comes to drawing. Seeing the illustrator’s sketches on their Tumblr then viewing it against the finished product makes total sense and helps us understand just how natural their process is. The artist’s piece entitled Glaze Window is one of the nicest drawings I’ve seen in weeks. Any publisher who doesn’t commission them to do at least one piece for their upcoming magazine is a total dummy.
