Artist Spotlight: Leesha Hannigan

We're keen to showcase talent as much as we can here on Geek:Life and the internet is overflowing with amazingly talented artists and illustrators. Leesha Hannigan is one such artist who is taking on commissions right now; we think we're going to be seeing a huge amount of her work in the future.

imageLeesha is an Australian-born freelance illustrator and concept artist.

At an early age, she was fascinated by fantastical literature, Aesop’s Fables and fairy tales. Soon she was drawn to video games, favouring high fantasy role-playing games. These were her escape and her inspiration, resulting in a desire to create original content that feels vibrant and alive.

She tend to work in a painterly style with a particular focus on light, often inspired by what she sees in nature and on her travels. She feels that lighting is incredibly powerful when it comes to setting a scene and it can play a wonderfully flexible role in the narrative. Nature is inherently theatrical, and she endeavours to capture that in her work.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
