Sam Wood first crept out of the mists and rain of southeast Alaska and infiltrated Wizards of the Coast back in 1995. Since then he has been a few places, gotten himself educated, and done a number of different jobs for Wizards. Now settled in as a staff illustrator, he seems poised to linger on for a while, like an odd smell.
Sam's earliest work in the game industry was for the BattleTech TCG. He has since gone on to work on games like Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, Alternity, Doomtown, Legend of the Five Rings, and Chainmail. His most recent notable contributions have been collaborating with Todd Lockwood on D & D (spikes and all) and concepting the vast majority of the Chainmail miniatures.
Sam currently resides in north Seattle with his lovely wife, 3.7 cats, and the family hellhound.
