banner-970x90f

Who is Leigh Le Roux and what do you do?

Born and bred in Cape Town, South Africa, I have been living as an illustrator slash designer in Johannesburg for the last 10 years. I admit that after watching Dragon ball Z, a popular TV show, in the third grade, I grew an addiction for drawing. The TV show inspired me to express myself on school textbooks and anything else that could be sketched on then during my studies at AAA school of Advertising I discovered I was able to sketch digitally as well. Over time I have watched as my style was changed.

Tell us about your work?

In my work i love line work because doing the drawing takes time and is like therapy, lately the work i do are about expressing a mood or feeling using not only the sketch style but the expression on the character is the only thing i give you to create a story behind the character.

What inspires your work?

Currently i’ve been going to alot of instagrameets meeting new people and with those i would express different people that inspire me.

What are you currently working on?

Lately i’ve been working on some collaborations with a photographer where we would like to mix illustration with real images. But i am still doing the illustrations of the people i meet regularly both on commission and in a personal expression from meeting them.

What advice would you give young creatives looking to do what you do?

Keep putting your work out there with time you will refine your work and become stronger for it, even today i think that i still have alot more to learn to make my work better. If it is what you love people will see it and it’s your passion and drive to succeed that will make the difference. One last thing is you need to believe in yourself because thats what makes you put in those long nights.

What has been the highlight of your career thus far?

I would say having my work at the Kalashnikovv Gallery last year was a big highlight for me as it was my first gallery show with some other amazing artist’s but the thing is because of that i want to exhibit more and show my work.
