"Conceptualize and Digitize: Streamlining the Illustration Process" with Schiani Ledo
Schiani Ledo (who also goes by simply LEDO or SLEDS) is an Orlando based Illustrator and Designer. Schiani’s work is inspired by mid-century spot illustrations and design as well as vintage sci-fi, comics, surrealism, DIY art culture, and the textural wonders of degraded print. Often working with a restricted color palette Schiani’s work seeks to hint at the nostalgia and tactility of found art, while also creating something completely new.
