Sam Yang

I'm a 24 y/o illustrator and content creator based in Toronto, Canada. I spend my time practicing, learning, and sharing what I know with the art communities on youtube, instagram and patreon! I hope to become the best artist I can possibly be, and in the process inspire others to draw. :)
