Patrick Leger


Born in the foothills of North Carolina, Patrick Leger attended East Carolina University where he received a degree in painting and a year later enrolled in the masters program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.  After college in 2007, Patrick began exploring a career in illustration and got his start doing work for the Op-Ed section of The New York Times.

Greatly influenced by the work of artists of the 1960s and a love of everything from that period, Patrick’s work combines both traditional aesthetics with modern sensibilities. His work has been recognized by American Illustration, Communication Arts, and The Society of Illustrators.
