Nancy Liang, an illustrator and art teacher from Sydney, Australia, creates handdrawn animated gifs that are charming, beautiful, and whimsical. The gifs are made almost entirely off-line, using paper cutouts and pencil drawings that are collaged together. Only later are the illustrations and cutouts scanned and animated in Photoshop.
The subject matter of Liang's gifs are peaceful landscapes. She explains, "I focus on suburbia, cities and landscapes, and attempt to bring out social, cultural and even personal narratives through these subjects."
