Leah’s work, though often deceptively simple, always pushes the boundaries of character and creature design. She works digitally and focuses heavily on creating well-formed characters and concepts. Often inspired by mythological creatures, she strives to create expressive designs that evoke strong emotions, building complete worlds with her artwork. Blending reality with fantasy allows Leah to fully explore the world of creature and character concept art.
Ratnik is a concept art and illustration project personifying and characterising Leah’s pet rats. This concept art is created for the production of a video game. Ratnik is about viewing the world through the perspective of domesticated rats abandoned in a forest. This project focuses on conceptualising the location in which this mischief of rats live. Leah is creating this project to explore our familiar landscapes through unfamiliar eyes.
