Artist Profile

Ted Leonid "Lei" Melendres a.k.a. Leight is a 24 year old freelance professional doodle artist and illustrator from the Philippines. He worked in an advertising agency for 2 years but decided to pursue freelance work as a full-time job which he has been doing for 5 years. Most of his clients are foreign and his works have been used in different medias such as posters, customized things, shirts, packaging and mobile apps. His artworks have been featured in several design and art related websites and were exhibited in several local galleries.

He calls his style "Infinity Mix" which from the name suggests describes the intense endless details and elements interacting together to form a scene. The usual elements included in his works are monsters, creatures, robots, aliens, patterns, typography and other stuff both common and weird. The main focus of his art is also popularly known as "Doodle Art".

He is also the head of a big doodle community in the Philippines named Doodle Art Enthusiasts which consist of around 600 plus young professional and amateur doodle artists.
