Soooo... Been a while since posting. The last 2 months have been a blur and I find myself in a position I've been working toward for some time. It actually happened - I get the call from a major publisher and what's more it's to work on a major license and character.

Story

Sequential artist and creative
Introduction
I'm Russ Leach and I am Kre8uk! I've had a 25 year career in production and publishing. Starting off in magazine production and then moving into retail I've  managed to art direct, design, code and illustrate for many large corporates such as EMAP, Sony and Tetra Pack. More recently I've been involved in web development and online creative projects. I had a spell during the nineties producing pencils for independent UK comics publishers and I'm now producing sequential art full time as well as posters, covers and private commissions.
