Kate Leake - Illustrator

Now I am slightly bias with this one. I spent three years studying with Kate. But I hope you can see just how darn talented she is! 
Not only does she create the most detailed and fun quirky illustrations for children, she also writes incredibly witty tales for them too. 'The Big Chip' happens to be my favourite (purely for memories sake). The reaction to Kate reading out the first draft of her little 3rd year master piece was pretty spectacular! 
 'My style combines hand drawn and computer techniques, and I love designing fun and lively characters. I also love doodling. It's the tiny scribblings that can lead into bigger and exciting things.....' Kate Leake

What you can do with paper!
