Meet the Team: Sam Manley

This week we want to introduce one of C7’s incredible artists, Sam, who has created many amazing pieces for Cubicle 7 over the years. If you are a WFRP fan, you will certainly recognise some of the artwork below. We are really looking forward to Sam’s work on the upcoming Age of Sigmar RPG. #TEAMTUESDAY

Hi! I’m Sam, tea-drinker and illustrator at Cubicle 7. I’m currently working on Age of Sigmar, having previously provided artwork for C7 for Cthulhu Tales, World War Cthulhu, Cthulhu Britannica, The Laundry, Lone Wolf, the Doctor Who Card Game, The One Ring, Adventures in Middle-earth, and WFRP. As a kid, Warhammer in particular had a huge impact on me – I played the game, but was really drawn into the world through the amazing artwork.

I’m a self-taught digital artist, and as well as that – and time allowing – I enjoy working in oil and scribbling with ink. My second love and hobby, I guess, is working with spray cans and stencils. I don’t get as much time as I’d like to play in this area, but I have been able to get out and take part in a few festivals. Closer to home, I served as chairman of my local art society for a few years, and organised some graffiti events as part of the Fringe festival here. I’ve also given art-related talks – basically my love of art is pretty expansive, and goes way beyond the job!

Apart from that, I love to travel ( there’s always so much to see and to learn – if there are art galleries, museums or examples of street art, I’m there! ) to experience different cuisines and, as an extension of that, to cook. When I have down time, I can usually be found in the kitchen trying out / inventing new recipes, which I then inflict on whoever’s around at the time.

So, that’s me – in brief, anyway. Lovely to meet you all!All the best,Sam.
