Meet @SamLarson the illustrator and designer behind our new Artist Series Mugs.
We first met freelance designer and illustrator Sam Larson the way most people do: through social media. He had sketched up one of our paper coffee cups and posted it on Instagram. His Old West, detailed, hand-drawn vibe was right up our alley. We got in touch and tasked him about working with us to design our next paper cup design and artist series mug. Sam’s fascination with the West runs deep, though he’s a fairly recent transplant. He originally hails from a tiny town of 3500 in Wisconsin. “My high school actually had a drive your tractor to school day,” he says. He moved to Portland after living in San Diego, looking for a new home with epic landscapes, wildlife, a good art scene and a mild winter.
