If you’ve ever wanted to see your name in lights then you’ve come to the right place. Animator and illustrator Weld Williams joined i2i Art earlier this year and he’s shaking things up with his unique style and eye catching colours. His recent portrait of country rap sensation Lil Nas X for The New Yorker (art directed by Neeta Patel) is no exception. Weld’s work makes a bold statement, playfully using animation to emulate the iconic flashing of neon signage. Striking neon line work adds a pop of colour, while giving a nod to the retro signs that inspire his style. We see nothing but bright lights in the future for Weld!
