“I gather my inspiration from the American West,” says Sam Larson (@samlarson), a 25-year-old Wisconsin native now working as a freelance artist in Carlsbad, California. “I like to get out into the mountains and desert whenever possible.” On Instagram, Sam shares his western-themed creations, which often take the form of tiny, penny-sized drawings.
Sam attributes his rekindled interest in illustration to Instagram. In 2013, after a five-year hiatus from art, “I started doing one drawing a night to post on Instagram. It was an exercise that held me accountable, and the encouragement helped keep me going.”
“Instagram has allowed me to make new friends, travel to places I didn’t know existed, share my art and so much more,” says Sam. “I hope to inspire people to pick up a pen, or to embark on some type of adventure.”

These are beautiful. I’d like to meet Sam and look at his pens. I’ve had a thing for high quality pens and paper, since I was a kid. So, Sam, if you’re ever in NC, I’ll treat to a meal if I can play with your pens. Yes, I know how that sounds and there’s no pun intended. Reblogged from pumpkin-pants
