Molly Leigh is a UK-based illustrator. Her work explores gothic horror themes of the monstrous, isolation and the occult, with focus on relationships between characters, their environments and their fears. Leigh is interested in displaying intimacy and in-depth character studies. Her illustrated novel On Hospital Hill is a sci-fi gothic horror narrative that examines mental illness, identity and environment – displayed through hand-drawn illustrations inspired by 19th and 20th century gothic engravings. Using a mixture of digital and traditional ink illustrations, Leigh intends to redefine character relationships, using gothic as a medium to explore the human condition.
Steventon’s work explores the link between writing and sewing, stitch and word. It’s an exploration of communication and messaging.
