Hi, I'm Elise Leonard, freelance Illustrator / Visual Development Artist / Art director
based in Brussels (Belgium). 
I mostly work for the animation industry. I love to create concept arts, backgrounds, characters and storyboards.
I have 8 years of experience. I've worked in-house for an advertising agency (Head of Design) then for a video production company (Illustrator in the animation team). Two years ago, I've decided to start working as a freelancer and joined a shared studio, with 10 other freelancers of the collective L'Enroule.
My clients are studios or directors and my projects alternate between commercial and entertainment.
What I love the most about illustration is to study and play with light and colors to convey emotions, to create a cinematic feeling and to explore visual solutions to help the director to visualize her/his vision. Learning and experimenting are always part of my artistic journey.
When I'm not drawing, I love writing absurd stories, night diving into big books, watching series while dissecting the composition of scenes and listening to scientific podcasts (I almost went for Biology instead of Drawing). 

Wanna know more about me?
I've participated to Takeover Tuesday from Dash Bash.
I've participated to a live session with Adobe Live France.

Wanna work with me or just say hi?
