As the newly christened SamG, Sam spent the next few years on the art show circuit. He began calling himself "World Famous SamG" to boost his credibility, figuring that at least a few people might believe it. A brief fling with reality television earned him the moniker, "Perfect TV Hair," and he advertised "Free Hugs" to everyone. But the business end of art saddened Sam. So in late 2016 he essentially rejected the outside world and began creating his own utopia, World Famous SamG Land, in his front yard. SamG Land was featured in Roadside Attractions in Dec, 2019. It is the home of the world's largest grit as well as Sam's studio where he can be found plying his artistic vision.
