Every week, UnderPinned puts a spotlight on two freelancers whose work we believe deserves a special mention. If you’d like to apply to be one of our Freelancers of the Week and be on our Showcase, make a portfolio on our Virtual Office!


Laurel Leslie, Illustrator 

I’m Laurel Leslie, an American illustrator. I originally intended to pursue a career in the animation industry but changed career paths after I won a nationally recognized illustration completion. Since then, I have been working as a freelancer and enjoying the flexibility my career provides.

Ross Becker, Illustrator 

I am a freelance illustrator based in South West England. I am largely inspired by a strange nostalgia for the aesthetics of the 1980s – a time unbeknownst to me – and what I imagine it was like to be there. My work is full of saturated, dusky colours reminiscent of old film photography. Since I graduated from Falmouth University with an illustration degree in 2014, I have spent time living and working in both London and Devon illustrating, designing and playing music with his band Fusea.
