Sam Hurt


Sam lives and works in South Austin, Texas, where he strives diligently at sculpture, painting, cartooning and sorting laundry. In 1979, he created the comic strip Eyebeam, described by the Village Voice as “the best comic strip you never heard of.” Eyebeam was a daily comic strip through most of the 1980s, and ran in the Austin American Statesman and other papers around the country. In 1990, Sam created Peaches, Queen of the Universe for United Feature Syndicate. Sam was a founding contributor to The Austin Chronicle with a strip called “Planet Oid”, and in 1995 he produced another strip for the Chronicle called “Schnozzo the Giant Bat.” The paper has featured Eyebeam continuously since 2006. Over the years, Eyebeam has been published in 10 books. Several of the early books are now collectible.
