Anger in Purple

by Leigh Young

Leigh Young, the artist, says, "Anger in Purple was a rebellion against the happy, always smiling cartoons and pinups I happened to be doing at the time. Just a little something to get it out of my system so I could get back into the smiley stuff again. It was all done in vector using Adobe Illustrator CS2 version. I just scanned a pencil sketch and used that as my base to “ink” and
colour on top of."

Leigh Young has been freelancing as an illustrator and graphic designer since 1997 and has been lucky enough to get work doing everything from designing toys to t-shirts, lottery tickets to microgaming. Her background is in animation and she has managed to apply just about everything she learned in it to her art. She works in pencil, ink and on her trusty Mac, using Adobe Illustrator as her weapon of choice. You can find more of her work at her website, LeighYoung.com.
