“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

Moloko Volocet by Sam Wolfe Connolly
1xRun: Tell us a little about this piece Moloko Volocet, is the original still for sale? What materials was it printed on and drawn with?
Sam Wolfe Connelly: The original was for a cult movie show back a couple months ago and the original drawing has been sold. It’s done in graphite and acrylic
1xRun: When was the piece drawn/created? How long did the piece take?
Sam Wolfe Connelly: 2012 and probably 30+ hours
1xRun: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?
Sam Wolfe Connelly: I really wanted to do something referencing A Clockwork Orange but in a little more subtle light. My favorite thing about that movie is the milk bar so I based the drawing after the women mannequins along with the hallucinogenic milk they drink
1xRun: What is unique about this piece?
Sam Wolfe Connelly: I don’t usually do movie-based pieces so the subject matter is a little different
