Russ Leach - kre8uk
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United Kingdom
I've had a 25+ year career in production and publishing.

Starting off in magazine production and then moving into retail, I've managed to art direct, design, code and illustrate for many large corporates including Sony, EMAP, Kia, Mecanno, Wizard and Tetra Pack.

After being involved in multiple web development and online creative productions, I have moved the focus of my work to illustrative and creative publishing projects.

I am now producing sequential art, character concepts, publishing design and story boards for US and UK clients varying from respected publishers like Markosia to educational and charitable organisations such as The Endeavour Charity whilst still involved in the US Indy scene.

Specialties: Comic strip, sequential art, conceptualisation and design

Projects on the go at present include Street! for Endeavour with The Mighty Quinn Management, Stormchasers and Origins for Unstoppable Comics. Also British Showcase Anthology, Terminus at Fenton's Green, Foxglove and The Indifference Engine 2 from Markosia.

I work on a Wacom direct to digital file and use whatever means I can to get the job done!

Current Residence: UK
Favourite style of art: Comic Strip
Operating System: All
Favourite cartoon character: Batman / Homer
So been a while!

Red Angel miniseries is now finished and issue 4 is at press - the collected trade paperback will be available soon as well.

Chronic Argonauts graphic novel is being made in to a tablet app and will be available to download from the Android store in the next couple of months.

I am working closely with Kevin Gunstone (writer with Marvel and Image) on several properties and also have a few projects in the wings

My current gig is with the most impressive JayDee Rosario at Unstoppable Comics and I'm taking on regular linework duties on the flagship title StormChasers (issue 5 onwards)
