It's hard not to fall in love with these provocative Sam Schechter illustrations. After all, the talented young artist always manages to render women beautifully amidst macabre motifs. She makes it easy for viewers to stare at her wondrous images while being lost in their own thoughts and admiration.

Sam Schechter, who also paints under the pseudonym herringbones, is an aspiring illustrator who regularly takes commissions from fans of her work. She's equally adept at producing analog art as she is digital pieces, though she seems to churn out her best stuff when working in the latter.

Those curious as to what Sam Schechter looks like will be surprised to learn that the Alice in Wonderland illustration in this gallery is in fact a self-portrait of the incredible artist.
