Sydney-based illustrator and artist Nancy Liang combines digital art and drawings to create mesmerising GIFS in night-time settings.

Nancy’s moody, yet whimsical animations combine hand-drawn pieces with digital illustrations, creating a juxtaposition between the two disciplines.

β€œI make paper-crafted collages traditionally and digitally, and create dreamlike images and animations of urban landscapes and sleepy scenes of Australian suburbia,” she explains on Jacky Winter.

Below are 10 of our favourites:

Thank you always for the love and support :) Have a happy, early, Mid-autumn Moon Festival πŸŒ• I hope you gorge yourself on lots of yummy foods and mooncakes! This week I finally got some closure from my wonderful cardiologist about my PFO and we’re on the way of booking in some echocardiograms to check my heart. He mostly overlooks patients with unusual causes of strokes, and I was surprised to know his youngest patient is 16! Inbetween my visits to the hospital (now officially my second home), I have a bit of down time to think about life so far. Perhaps it’s a bit trivial, but over the past year or so I felt like preoccupied myself with too much work. There are so many personal projects and new things I want to try, but most importantly in the midst of being busy I’ve forgot to give back to others. So now, on top of working, I intend to cultivate positive things, and mend untended projects to help realise the dreams of others. No more excuses because life is short βœ¨πŸŒΈπŸ’•
