Who is this guy anyways?

I’m Leslie Tran and I’m primarily a character designer, illustrator, and vis dev artist, based in Malmö, Sweden! I have been working as a freelance artist for 4 years, some of my clients include Massive Black, Netflix, and Singularity Six. I’m passionate about the storytelling aspects of art, and creating fantasy worlds full of wonder. If you’ve somehow made it this far into my website, and want to know more? Drop me a line on any of my social media links or [email protected]; I’ll be sure to get back to you!

I grew up in NOVA Virginia, but moved to Anaheim, California, when I was a little sprout. Growing up, my brother and I fought over the only source of entertainemnt we had, a Compaq PC. There was where I forged many of the inspirations for my art today; instead of playing street hoop or soccer like the other kids, I spent my days playing Baldur’s Gate, Diablo, and Warcraft games. I was a late bloomer in the art world, as I did not find my love for drawing until I was 20. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 2010 with a Bachelors Of Science in Mechanical Engineering, coupled with about 6 years of engineering work experience to date (I know right?).

To satisfy my desire for new experiences and traveling, I’ve somehow found my way living in Malmö, in Southern Sweden. Outside of drawing and painting all day, I enjoy reading, cooking, gardening, and most of all, discovering new music.
