We Want Your Art: Just Sam

While Francisco Santos’s hating Kate Moss, we’re loving all the art submissions coming in for our continuing We Want Your Art series.

“He Didn’t Notice”, a comic book (and Roy Lichtenstein?)-inspired lamentation of unequited homo love, comes to us from a reader named Just Sam. He gave us no last name, so this is what we’ve taken to calling him. Just Sam also failed to divulge the illustrated character’s name, so we’ve taken to calling him “Trauttie” after our favorite homo-journo, Jesse Trautmann – who, we must say, has not returned our last email. We think he’s pissed about our post about his break-up. Sorry, Jesse, we couldn’t help ourselves.

Okay, back to Just Sam…

When he’s not doodling away, Just Sam works in the Marvel Comics Toy Division. Pretty fucking cool, right? Not surprisingly, he’s also a member of the Gay League, which he claims is a bit nerdy (which it is), but still earns him our undying love.

While Just Sam doesn’t have a personal website, he does illustrate a bi-weekly comic strip for the cats over at Espirituality. Also, if you want to drop him a line, send him a piece of electronic mail: [email protected].

Don’t worry, we’ve got more art coming your way. But, of course, we’re always looking for more, so send it our way! Who knows, you could end up like Eric Sizemore and get an entire feature!

(Update: Sam’s surname’s Hatmaker. We’re still going to call him Just Sam, though.)
