Photographer Matt Robertson: What It Takes to Shoot Artists Like Kid Cudi, Whiz Khalifa, and Maroon 5

The allure of the rockstar lifestyle is easily explained: fame, travel, appreciation, adoration, influence, and experiences that are easily reserved for the very, very few. Unfortunately, it's pretty hard to be a rockstar. Despite our curiosity about the ins and outs of what that lifestyle is like, very few of us will ever be able live it. So what's the next best thing? We want to read everything we can about celebrities. We want to hear from their friends about what it's "actually like."

Samantha Lee Strikes Gold with Just a Pen and Her Imagination

Based around the evolving idea of discovery with each artistic piece pulling inspiration from the ordinary to the fantastic, Samantha Lee is a San Francisco pen and ink illustrator with a phenomenal eye for texture and proportion. Lee’s work represents her own self-discovery and quiet moments lost in time. Never planned out, each piece is mixed media with a focus on pen and ink, drawn on a whim section by section. That sort of artistic spontaneity usually requires the use of erasable pencils, but there's not a hint of graphite to be found in Lee's work.
