Rockstar North

“Throughout Leigh’s time at Rockstar North we worked on several projects together including the Grand Theft Auto series. Leigh always came across as very professional but easy to get on with. His artwork was exemplary, not only in looks but more importantly for me, in functionality and design. Outside of work, he spent his own time organising five-a-side football for the guys here which was very much appreciated by all. I would look forward to working with Leigh in the future should he ever decide to come back home.” December 22, 2009

“I worked with Leigh on seperate departments on GTA 4, and I found him to be a reliable, versatile, disciplined and dedicated artist. He produced the work consistently, on time and of the required standard or considerably better. Personally, he is also a nice guy, with good interpersonal skills and enthusiasm for his work. He is a pleasure to work with, and would be a valuable asset to any company. Five stars. Two thumbs up.” November 4, 2009

“I worked with Leigh closely on GTAIV and other projects and found him to be a highly talented, motivated, hard working and creative artist. I looked forward to his weekly art updates as they were always works of art in their own right and showed a keen knowledge of composition, lighting and creating atmosphere.
Leigh is a great artist to have in any team – his open, positive and enthusiastic attitude at work can easily spread thanks to his highly social and bright demeanour.
Leigh makes the process of creating top level art for AAA games and helping move a team forward seem effortless, and any art team would benefit greatly from his input.
Overall, a fantastic asset for any games company!” October 20, 2009

“I had the pleasure of working with Leigh for four and a half years. During that time, I found Leigh to extremely well rounded in his art skills. He consistently delivered level art that was well above and beyond what was expected. As a person he is genuine, positive, fun and a pleasure to work alongside. And over the course of the last few years, it has to be said, one of the best people to have on a night out. I heartily recommend him, and would happily work with him in the future.” October 19, 2009

Environments-Vehicle Artist

Atomic Planet Entertainment

“I was Leighs lead artist on his first project. He was a prodigious natural talent with a grasp of modelling / texturing that far outweighed his lack of experience. He worked extremely hard to achieve punishing deadlines and never once let us down. He is also a lively and entertaining team member. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again (although he’d probably be my boss now!)” March 1, 2006
