Created for a short story by Rachel Swirsky, Sam Weber mustered up this wonderful illustration titled A Memory of Wind. Agamemnon sacrifices his daughter, Iphigenia, so that he may have wind to sail his warships to Troy.
Weber was born in Alaska, and grew up in Deep River Ontario, Canada. After attending the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, he moved to New York to pursue illustration and attend graduate school at The School of Visual Arts. My studio is in Brooklyn.
