Magazine, United States
Around the same time i began getting work for Impeller magazine and ABB Pumps and turbines and Robotics. Mosty illustrating semi editorial or technical articles about advances in the engineering or changes in the business markets. Involved a enjoyable amount of random research in fact. In the end often very dry stuff usually but i tried and i think succeeded in finding interesting ways to illustrate the subject matter. I had a pretty long and prosperous and positive relationship with the editors until the company signed an exclusive contract with an agency.

Dwyer, United States
collecting 4pt Horror story with Rick Remender & Kieron For this series I got layouts from was fun, freed me from a lot of the heavy thinking at that first stage. I was free to work them, make appropriate changes. It was a very comfortable approach, and having Kieron as sometimes foil to bounce things off of was rewarding. For the stylized rendering in this book I used Inda ink & wash predominantly, and developed a method from separating the art for 2 color printing - the book was printed on yellowish paper and in a deep, dried blood like red brown and black ink. Successfully achieving a very intense moody feel. Art by Salgood Sam, Scripted by Rick Remender & Kieron Dwyer, Layouts buy Kieron Dwyer. Co-owned & created by Rick Remender, Kieron Dwyer & Salgood Sam. you can see the art here http://salgoodsam.com/comix/redsea/ 1 recommendation available upon request Inker on Terminator 3: Before the Rise at Beckett Comics

'Realworlds: Wonder Woman vs. the Red Menace' 48 page graphic novella Art by Salgood Sam by Glen Hanson & Allan Neuwirth This 48pg trade was my First Graphic Novella. Done entirely with a Brush, the art is an intentional stylistic echo of 40's comic art and the drawing traditions of H.G. Peter's original comic. Bernie Mireault & I worked closely to choose a color palate for this book that captured the saturated colors of early comics, & the first Technicolor films. The original script would have called for a book that was several times longer to do justice to, and sadly had to be cut short due to preset page counts. The plot shows some odd brevity as a result, the missing development is missed. But despite that it reads well and I feel this book is an overall successes. Took a little longer to get done due to the delays from the script but it all got done in time in the end. view the art here http://spiltink.dreamhost.com/salgood/comix/ wonderwoman/ww.html Key Location and Prop Designer on Heavy Metal 'FAKT2' at CINE GROUPE Inc

Background Inker on Sam & Max
Dec 1996 - Oct 1997 (10 months)
I had the pleasure to work with lots of charmin' folks doing very unique looking background art for the TV version of Sam & Max for the 1st season of the series. Directed by Steve Whitehouse [http:// i worked directly with the Layout dept, which provided the standard clean layout art for use to ink and finish - and in close contact with the design dept, which acted as our quality control dept on this stage of the art. I was fortunate to have a previous working relationship with the head designer, Goran Delic, who put my name in the hat for the gig. I received clean-line layouts and was responsible for heavily rendering them with very stylized heavy brush lines, adding a large amount of additional rendering to the art with textures, feathered shading, and a lot of general ink work. you can see some of the art here http://www.salgoodsam.com/SamMax.html 1 recommendation available upon request Artist - B&W inked art on Spiderman 2099 at Marvel Entertainment

This was very early on in my WFH days after the 2 Night Breeds I was asked on to a new Series - part of the, a sub imprint consisting of 4 books that were outlined at the concept stage by Clive Barker. My book was Saint Sinner, the flag ship title of the line. Was very excited, a prestigious gig to get so soon in my carrier. I was not happy with the way things went in the end, but it was a major learning experience for me and I'm proud of much of the art I contributed to the books.

Clive Barker's Night Breed
Nov 1993 - Feb 1993 (8 months)
My First official WFH in mainstream Comics. I was hired on first compleat an unfinished issue of Clive Circle of Vengeance pt3. It was the fastest i ever drew i think, did 19 full size [11x17"] pages of art in 10 days.
Amazed me and impressed the editors who a month latter asked if I'd like another. That was 'THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY' in Clive Barker's Night Breed #23, a 32 page story.
This one also went fast and i'm still very pleased with a lot of the art i did on it.
