Two exquisite stories drawn in Sam Alden's signature, flowing, and lush pencil style. In "Hawaii 1997", few words are spoken, but Aldens imagery evokes the magic of a night-time encounter at a Hawaiian resort. In "Anime" he explores the complicated dynamics of pop culture obsession. Sam Alden is one of the brightest young talents working today.
Sam Alden is the author of the comics New Construction, It Never Happened Again, Lydian and Haunter. For the last few years he has worked as a writer and storyboarder on Adventure Time and Summer Camp Island.
Sam has also done illustrations for Slate, The New York Times, and Cicada Magazine; and I've taught and lectured at Parsons, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, The Animation Workshop, and the Center for Cartoon Studies.
