“Be authentic with yourself and do the thing you love, not necessarily what is popular. Do what makes you feel like you and that connects with your heart!”
- About moving to Dubai, Sam shares that he came without anything and found his job at Cartoon Network by accident, walking into a comics convention in Dubai from the beach and showing his portfolio on his smartphone
- As an Art Director, Sam is wearing different hats, working with different artists – background artists, character artists, 3D modelers
- When hiring artists, Sam always looks at the certain level of quality – dedication, exploration, freshness, believability in characters, backgrounds, color & light
