Sam Wolfe-Connelly Drops The Floating Bat Rider Check The Latest From The Playboy Illustrator

“I was born in the D.C. area and moved to NYC last year after spending 4 years living in Savannah, GA. I enjoy drawing strangers in public, ransacking haunted houses and expanding my thorough knowledge on all types of honey. I try to find purpose in my art by trying to evoke as much emotion as I can within my viewers. Some of my illustration clients include Playboy, Hasbro, Penguin, Night Shade Books and Coheed & Cambria. ” – Sam Wolfe Connelly
