Samuel Flegal (born October 1980 in Midland, Michigan) is an artist from Nashville, Tennessee.
In 2003, he received a bachelors of fine arts from Mississippi State University. His wife is also a graphic artist.
I’ve been a freelance illustrator since 2009, and I love my job. As much as I love working with Art Directors to add my creative vision to their projects, I also understand deadlines are the real deal. I have no trouble merging creativity and professionalism. My art’s been used on book covers, hobby games, movie concept art, and even The History Channel. If I can help them, chances are I can help you too.
I’ve been fascinated by strange and creative pursuits from a very young age. Fortunately for my budding creativity, I was raised in a household that encouraged my interest in all things weird—my father was a magician and my mother was a ventriloquist and clown. My dad is still a magician actually, and my mom works in publishing with more than 100 books to her name.
I went to Mississippi State, where I got my BFA in Graphic Design. I worked in corporate marketing for about 7 years, before realizing it wasn’t the right fit for me. After encouragement from my wife I switched my focus to drawing and painting which was the reason I got into art school in the first place. I’ve never looked back!
