Chris Samnee is an American comic book artist. He received the 2011 Harvey Award for Most Promising Newcomer for his work on the Thor: The Mighty Avenger, and won a 2013 Eisner Award for Best Penciller/Inker for his work on The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom and Daredevil. He was also nominated for the 2006 Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award.
The artist has most notably worked on Thor: The Mighty Avenger, Daredevil, Black Widow, The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom, and The Shadow. Unlike many other comic books artists, Samnee inks his own pencils.
He lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with his wife, Laura, and their three daughters.
Below are some of my favorite sketches that Samnee has posted on Twitter. Favorite Marvel and DC characters are all represented in their black and white glory.
I love how Chris utilizes negative space in these sketches and with only a few strokes of his pen, he remarkably captures the essence and action of these beloved heroes and villains!
