Hi! I’m Syd Ritsema and am a junior at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota Florida! I am currently taking a gap year so I came back home for a break and for safety reasons! I study Illustration which is basically just an accumulation of Painting/Drawing/Digital Art and multiple other mediums. I grew up in Downs Illinois, but went to high school at U-High so am really familiar with Bloomington Normal. I have a cat named Blake, she’s a tortoise-shelled calico and is either super sweet or super playful, there is no in between!
