Don Smithmier

CEO at GoKart Labs and The Big Know

"I had a great experience working with Sam Aburime on projects for Feather Moon Music. She was extremely reliable, highly detail-oriented and consistently followed through on her commitments. She's a very talented illustrator and animator and very easy to work with."

Calli Baartman

Account Manager at 2020 BRAND SOLUTIONS

"I had the privilege of working with Sam on some different t-shirt graphic concepts for a large client of ours. I found Sam to be very quick to respond, creative, and she took direction very well when I would relay edits the client was looking for. The client was very happy with the end results, which in turn made me very happy! I would definitely recommend Sam to anyone looking for art/ graphic assistance."

Tasha Lehner

Author, Mental Health Field

"My co-author and I hired Samantha to illustrate our children’s book. Samantha was a delight to work with. She provided creative artistic designs in a timely manner, effectively navigated communication with the authors and publishers, and was very flexible during the entire process. It was a pleasure to work with Samantha, and I would highly recommend her as an artist and illustrator for future projects."

Brett Hummel

Chief Creative Officer at Tinket

"Samantha is a very talented creative. As an animator, she was successful in adapting to a pre-established illustration style and produced hundreds and hundreds of illustrations consistent with that style. She actively collaborated with our content experts to make sure what she was drawing was accurately represented. Week after week she also created assets for two 3-minute animated shorts, inventing characters, and drawing numerous parts and pieces to hand off to our animators for production."

Reuben Spencer

Freelance Composer

"When looking for work around the Twin Cities area, I was approached by her for her upcoming senior project, Boys by the Sea. After a years worth of work, we finally got the right music for the film. She was easy to work with, understood what my needs were, and was never negative toward something she didn't like and even went a step further by giving examples. All in all, I am glad to have worked with her and hope to work with her again on a future project."

Client Reviews

Justin Weber

Animator at Walt Disney Animation Studios

"Samantha was my animation assistant on the short film Canvas, where we did hand-drawn animation in Photoshop. She assisted me by doing breakdowns and inbetweens on a shot I keyed out. Samantha is an incredible artist and wonderful to work with. She is very communicative, takes notes well, and meets her deadlines with ease. She showed a passionate willingness to learn on the job. Her drawing ability is excellent and versatile, and she was able to confidently match the style of the short. She has a great, positive attitude, and her passion shows in her work. I am confident that she will be a wonderful addition to any project and team, and I highly recommend her!"
