I first watched Leon when I was a little kid and I was captivated by his character and Mathilda and their strange but amazing relationship. To this day it remains one of my favourites films and sparked a appreciation for Luc Besson's directing style in films like Nikita and 5th Element as well as the amazing music from Eric Serra. I started this artwork about 2 years ago when I was inspired by the works of Drew Struzen and it has been slowly developing in my spare time. I finally had a chance to sit down and finish it. I wanted to add as much detail as possible to the characters and have them capture and express the mood of the film.
