Illustration: Patrick Leger gets better and better with every new piece of work

Posted by James Cartwright,

There’s few illustrators around whose output improves with such steady consistency as Patrick Leger’s. The illustrator from North Carolina has long since perfected his own style of imagery that borrows from a golden age of illustration; of half-tone colour separations, swift but precisely-inked lines and chiseled jaws meeting furrowed brows. In spite of this he has no desire to rest on his laurels, instead striving for improvement and development in his use of colour, his development of character, the pacing of his narratives and the composition of his images. This combination of innate skill and seemingly endless perfectionism makes him (in my eyes at least) one of the finest illustrators out there today.
