I'm Leah Lucci: designer, illustrator, wearer of purple, Dodge Neon connoisseur, and world-class bad singer. BE MY PAL.
I specialize in character, graphic design, illustration, portraits.
These were drawn by hand without lifting the pen, then colored in Illustrator. Did I get your dog?
I've combined Inktober and Drawlloween to create a bunch of big ink-wash paintings of horror themes. I'm really excited about these!!! I can't wait to have 31!
If you've ever wanted to learn more about me, this is your opportunity.
I've been drawing a lot of mandalas lately. Circles, upon circles, upon circles! I love it! It's very soothing and meditative.
My current sketchbook is the lovingly titled "Blue Sketchbook." Feel free to enjoy its many, many pages, plus two bonus zoom-ins of favorite spreads! Let me know if you have any questions.
May 2019 was a month that I focused on collaging my own handmade paper together to create illustrations. I also started trying out gouache, to mixed results. It's a skill I intend to learn!
I like the notion of Poison Ivy from Batman being a sort of vengeful Mother Earth. I sometimes wish Mother Earth would give us the smackdown. We deserve it.
Toys used to be so much cooler back in the day. I realize this makes me sound like a very old nerd. I also realize that I AM a very old nerd. So there's that.
I took an hour or two and drew some owls while watching the 7th Harry Potter movie. The black (it's actually dark purple) ink is in a Platinum Preppy refillable marker (I SWEAR BY THESE -- you just need the ONE and can keep putting ink in it) (https://www.gouletpens.com/collections/other-writing-instruments/products/platinum-preppy-refillable-marker-black?variant=11884751487019) and the green is in an extra-fine Lamy Al-Star (https://www.gouletpens.com/products/lamy-al-star-fountain-pen-bluegreen?variant=11884855885867).
I tried drawing an architectural thing. I'm not good at it, but hey, gotta learn eventually! (I guess. Come to think of it, most people NEVER pick up this skill and turn out mostly OK.)
Oh men, launching their phallic-shaped objects into the world behind. TYPICAL.
Due to financial/logistical reasons, I can't do literal linocuts as often as I'd like, so I draw my illustrations in reverse, flip them digitally, have them printed, and then color them in by hand. The result is basically an "artist's print". I only make one of each. These were watercolor, but I've recently discovered gouache, so keep an eye out for future pieces that incorporate that.
There's a moment in Black Panther where Michael B Jordan's character steals an African mask from a museum. When the other character with him asks why, he says "I'm just feelin' it." The mask he grabbed was VERY cool, and I kind of wanted one, too. But, short of stealing things out of museums, I guess I'll have to draw them. If you click on the image, you'll see a full spread of them.
Cat astronaut and a scary murder-santa. None of this has anything to do with anything else.
My friend and I are trying to nail down a tattoo idea for her that involves witchcraft and weight lifting. (Note: the final picture was supposed to be two different ones, but appears to be repeating itself. This happens to me sometimes. Not sure how to fix it.)
Listen, I wish I could explain the content of this sketchbook to you better, because you do deserve better, but I have nothing.
Vintage weightlifters, surreal octopodes that look like my friends, and rabbits, rabbits, rabbits.
I'm so glad I drew this creepy thing, but I'm hoping like heck to never meet in real life.
I watercolored Mathilda's Ms Trunchbull as well as Bride of Frankenstein. I originally painted Lady Frankenstein in green, but it turns out she's a human-skinned person, so I had to change that in Photoshop.
Here are 5 assorted doodles! I hope you love them.
Here are a few sketchbook layouts I did with acrylic & pencil.
