Welcome to What’s On Your Wall?, an ongoing series exploring the creative spaces of the artists who inspire us.
Known for his playful shapes and humorous illustrations, Samuel Eckert doesn’t limit himself to just one medium – he’s created everything from large-scale murals (under the pseudonym Jamy) to zines (under his own publishing company, Limo). We’re big fans of his simple-yet-bold, cheeky illustrations, so we reached out to the illustrator about taking a peek into his studio. Want to see how a Parisian artist decorates his space? Take a look at his carefully-curated studio below:
