Appropriately dubbed an “illustr-animator,” Syd Weiler of Sarasota, Florida finds inspiration in everyday life and the seemingly mundane. She works completely digitally, preferring her Microsoft Surface Pro over a blank sheet of paper. While Syd learned most of what she knows in college and through her experience as a designer for forthcoming indie video game Jenny LeClue, she’s steadily grown a passionate online community that’s enthused about her continued work on “Before & After,” a series of digital illustrations depicting places in two different states of being side by side in order to explore the concept of time.
