Coffee, travel, music…we’re all trying to get the most out of our lifestyle. Here I summarize industry news, analyze social trends and get down and dirty with the art of java.

I also review various forms of media and promote lesser-known indie projects that could use more attention. Being an artist myself I’ve always been interested in what goes on behind-the-scenes and, as such, want to give back the best way I can.

I’m an illustrator, specializing in fantasy and science-fiction, and you can see my work here. Contact me at ashesamuels@gmail.com for inquiries or rates.
