Instead, it was LEGO that gave him a creative outlet. After a failed career in sports, a friend showed him Cinema 4D and the opportunity of a new direction.
“It instantly felt like playing with LEGO again,” he remembers. “The love for 3D modelling and building worlds made me practise more and more in my free time. And so after four years of school I graduated in February this year. I’ve been working freelance ever since, and tackling personal projects in my spare hours.”
As well as being a big fan of giant cityscapes, Leon also channels his love of science fiction into his artwork. “It’s amazing that more and more of these concepts from the movies I loved as a kid – and still do – are becoming reality.”
