Leanne Slight is a freelance illustrator and visual development artist who hails from Wales, has lived in America for a year and now resides in Lincolnshire, England. Despite being Welsh, she knows very little of the language because she grew up in Rhyl, a seaside tourist town where Welsh people don’t seem to exist! (And also because she spent all of her school time daydreaming and doodling!). Over her career she’s been lucky enough to have worked alongside some incredibly talented people on a variety of projects within kids entertainment. Some of her favorites include...
- Illustrating a series of ‘Danger Mouse’ books for Penguin Randomhouse.
- Providing visual development for Moshi Monsters: The Movie, an animated feature-length film based on Mind Candy’s popular browser game.
- And working with Universal NBC, creating Lego Jurassic World assets for their licensing partners.
Some other clients she’s enjoyed working with include Sony, BBC, Imagine Publishing and Cancer Research UK.
Leanne is particularly inspired by animals, comedy, the seasons, and tales of friendship, adventure & teamwork. She also has a major passion for character design, especially when it’s based around creatures, real or fantastical. When she’s not at her desk drawing, she can often be found trying to befriend local cats on her way to a coffee shop!
She's always open to new opportunities so if you're interested in working together just send a friendly message to hello @ leanneslight.com
