About Samuel Embleton

As soon as he was strong enough to hold a pencil, Sam was filling paper with sketches and drawings. The third generation in a family of artists, he grew up in a creative world, helping out as a kid in the family business, Time Machine AG. At 15 he started working in that same company, illustrating for books and magazines as well as creating life-sized figures and dioramas for museums. Following his basic training in the Swiss army and keen to tread his own path, he launched his own freelance business at 21. He is currently based in Fribourg in Switzerland, works on illustrations for clients and creates his own projects, the latest being a comic strip series about Swiss history which he wrote and illustrated.
