Léonie Després

London, UK



Oh, what I wouldn’t give to live in Léonie Després’ world! A world where the characters this young woman draws and animates are every shade of colorful, a world where “harmony” is the obvious choice of words to describe the human interactions that she masterfully depicts. Léonie takes on projects that matter to her and are in sync with her values: Alternatiba’s “What if… the post pandemic world looked very different from the one before?” project is a good example of how she can illustrate (and animate) a future full of hope, that hinges on doing things differently. And with young talented artists like Léonie Després, it feels like it could be more than just a pretty picture.
