Russ Leach lives in England and has had a long production career spanning multiple disciplines including publishing, illustration, retail design and online software development.

Russ has worked in the creative sphere since 1986 and over his career has worked on a wide variety of creative projects with multiple International and blue chip companies. The list includes such well known brands as EMAP, Hornby, Sony, Lego, Wizard, Meccano, Harrods, AlfaLaval and Thomson. That list has increased more recently with publishers such as Marvel, Hachette, BBC Worldwide, Cartoon Network, Markosia and Panini.

Russ's debut graphic novel "Terminus at Fenton's Green" was released in 2014 to rave reviews and was published by cult Indy publisher Markosia. This was followed up with a second OGN in 2015 with master of the Macabre, Cy Dethan, with "Indifference Engine 2 - the suicideshow".

Whilst keeping one toe in Indy comics with various US based titles and David Lloyd's "Aces Weekly", Russ has also been the regular artist on Panini's Doctor Who Adventures since April 2015 and is currently producing a mix of storyboards, indy comic strip and illustrations for Marvel and Hachettes "Draw The Marvel Way".
