Sam Sawyer's new series starring non-binary hero to SacAnime Con
Fast-forward a few years: now a successful comic artist and visual designer, Sam created the animated series "SALEM: The Secret Archive of Legends, Enchantments, and Monsters," featuring the vocal talent of Rob Paulsen ("Animaniacs")
Rob Paulsen said of Sam "She did what all the folks at Comic Con love about this whole experience. It's not about anything but utter joy in expressing yourself, being creative and being accepted for who you are. I'm really proud of her."
But Sawyer isn't only determined to bring back the edgy animation of her youth; she's also a veteran comic book artist, a published author, and designer of three Tarot decks. She appears at over 20 Comic Con events per year and was an artistic collaborator on the new Lindsey Stirling music video, "The Upside."
With her pink and purple "hombre" style haircut and bright personality, the queer-identified Sawyer knew she was an artist from a young age. Despite leaving home early, and even being homeless for a time, her determination and talent allowed her to find a space for her unique artistic vision and gave her the confidence to keep conquering new frontiers.
Sam Sawyer will be appearing at SacAnime Con at The Pavilion on Jan 3-5 in Sacramento, CA.
