Leonardo: the game by loish Leonardo: the game by loish
Finally, I get to share this project with you guys! I've been making comic sequences for CBBC's Leonardo: the game since May and just finished last month. This is the promo image I made for it.

Leonardo is a Children's BBC television show, aired in the U.K, about the adventures of a teenage Leonardo da Vinci (warning: in no way historically accurate). The second season of the show is being released around now, together with an online game for kids on the CBBC website. It's a mix of a race game with storytelling sequences throughout, which is what I contributed. You can play it here - [link] .

It was great fun to work on this! I got to work in my own style and help out a little bit with the concept art as well. I did not write the storyline/script or come up with the characters though - these already existed! I'll post some of the comic sequences up sooner or later as well, but if you want to see them already you can play the game :]

Credits go to:
Plug-in Media ( [link] ), who made and directed the game. It was so much fun to work with them!
Kindle Entertainment ( [link] ), who produced the TV Show and also worked on the game.

Does anyone else see Bolin/Mako, Korra, Tahno and Equalists in this? It's not exact copies but like their siblings in another Universe or something......

LOISH!!!

been following you for about 5 years now and watched you coming up. good to see you, in my eyes, hitting the big time.

just wondering on your situation, are you freelance? have you got agency representation? and how did you start out? did you just leap into freelance or were you a graphic designer for a while as a day job?

sorry just very interested in your success!

aw thanks! i'm a freelancer right now and have been since graduating. i do have a casual relationship with an agency who sometimes negotiates projects for me, but not always. i think promoting my work online during my school years really helped me to smoothly integrate into the freelance world, i get enough job offers to get by for the time being based on the exposure my work gets on the web!

Yes please!

The game is actually pretty good, I didn't expect that from a flash game based on a show. Usually they are too gimmicky but this one was pretty cool to play.

This is a great promo pic! Action, gear, and the main bad guy with the "hero" and the damsel (who doesn't look distressed). What more could you ask for?

Although, every time I look at the lady, I keep thinking Emma Watson...
