Sam Wolfe Connelly was born and raised in Northern Virginia. He became fascinated with drawing his obsessions with nature, the world around him and things that remained unseen. This led him to pursue a degree in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia.
He was not yet out of school when he started receiving his first commissions, and has been on the radar as an up and coming young illustrator. Sam enjoys drawing strangers on the subway, depicting haunted houses and continuing his fascination with honeybees.
His clients include Playboy Magazine, Hasbro, Night Shade Books, Plan Adviser Magazine, Evil Ink Comics, Virginia Living Magazine, Bitch Magazine, Bay State Parent, Eugene Weekly, Educational Leadership, Colors Magazine and Coheed & Cambria, and has shown work with the Spoke Art Gallery and Gallery Nucleus in California.
Sam is currently based in New York.
