Leigh tells us about himself with a simple Q&A
Q1 Who is Leigh Francis?
Isnʼt he the incredibly shy, well mannered gentleman that plays me TVʼs Keith Lemon?!
Q2 Where do you get your inspiration?
Everywhere! People, books, toys, fashion, skateboards, films. Everything Iʼm into is kinda linked and lends itself to each.
Q3 Did you have any training?
Yeah I went to art college for a million years before I became a clown on telly. But I love doing both! Again my creative sides lends itself to the silly I do on telly
Q4 How would you describe your art?
I have a very graphic style, just like my telly style! Very comic book like I guess. Iʼm a secret nerd but Iʼve recently come out! (As a nerd!) I think nerds are cool. Ya shouldnʼt every rush to grow up. If youʼre into toys and comics and stuff itʼs cool. What ever makes you happy!
Q5 What artists inspire you?
All kinds. Love Keith Haring, Basquait, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, skateboard artist Jim Philips, Jim Moir(Vic Reeves) and I love Drew Struzanʼs style. He does the best movie posters!
Q6 What does Sentiment mean to you?
Itʼs an attitude, thought, or judgment prompted by feeling. Thatʼs what it says when you google it. Sounds about right to me. As long as itʼs a positive sentiment then Iʼm ‘appy to be involved in it! Owt negative is just a waste of everyoneʼs time.
