Sam’s been a freelance Illustrator since 2009. Working for both book covers and hobby games, he specializes in painting strange scenes of epic fantasy and graphic horror. His art is described as “stylized realism,” portraying fantastical things in a graphic manner, but with an eye towards real life. He loves to focus on exaggerated expressions, vibrant colors, and villainess activity. Sam’s preferred medium is oil paint.
Sam Flegal’s clients include AEG, Fantasy Flight, Hero Games, 3Some Games, Lone Wander, & Eagle Games. He’s worked on titles like Warhammer 40K, Legend of the Five Rings, and Fantasy Hero Complete. Sam won 1st place in the Gen Con 2014 Art Show, Best 2D in the 2014 Liberty Con Art Show, the Jordan Con 2014 Judges’ Choice Award, and the Gen Con 2012 Juror’s CHoice Award. His work was included in the fantastic art collection, Infected by Art Volume 2, and has been chosen for inclusion in the upcoming Infected by Art Volume 3.
Sam also has a deep love for Norse Mythology. In his personal work Sam depicts scenes from the lore of the Northmen. His reputation as a Norse Myth enthusiast is increasing and collectors have begun to seek him out for his interpretations of the Northern Gods.
