There are two things you should know about Patrick Leger. Number one –Patrick Leger is an incredible illustrator. Number two – Patrick Leger spends his days musing away in North Carolina. But whereas the latter does a good job of feeding my fantasies of eloping to sunnier skies fact number one (the illustration stuff) is more than worthy of five minutes of your precious appreciation.
Illustrating for pretty much every publication under the sun including the likes of FHM, the BBC, The New York Times and Wired Magazine , Patrick is clearly not short of admirers. With his bold use of heavy black outlining, bright colours and nostalgic tones his talent as an illustrator is pretty obvious and with his portfolio brimming with illustrative delights covering topics as diverse as “Divorce,” “Rising Teen Pregnancy” and “The Dangers of Removing a Sweater in Public”. And with a load of new work uploaded to his site since we last featured him on February 2011 he is clearly a creative talent going from strength to strength.
