About

Welcome to the island of Sytropolis!  Here you’ll discover the different creative “neighborhoods” of my mind.  I am Sydnee Davidson and an artist of sorts.  During the day I am a Sr. Designer & Motion Graphics Designer at an unscripted television production company, by night I am a freelance artist who enjoys drawing, painting, customizing vinyl toys, 3Doodling, coloring with markers….anything that can allow me to create stuff.  My specialties include pop-culture mashups and satire.  If it makes you laugh or smile, then I’ve done my job.

My freelance work thrives off referrals, so if you see something you like, please tag and share!
