Studios,[7] Macmillan Press,[7] Harper Collins, and Cottage Door Press.[8] Other freelance work has included postcards and merchandise for Owl Crate,[9][10] the Google doodle on Pakistani actor Waheed Murad,[10] and illusrations for the children's magazine Storytime.[10] She has tabled at New York Comic Con and Pasadena's Lightbox Expo, the latter at which she spoke on a panel about illustration for children's books.[11] In 2016, Syed's depictions of Disney princesses as everyday millenial-aged people garnered notice from outlets such as Bustle Media Group's Elite Daily.[12] In 2019, Syed illustrated the children's book I Am Perfectly Designed, written by Karamo Brown of Queer Eye;[1][13] Brown has stated that he and his co-author, his son, directly selected Syed as their illustrator for the project.[14] Also in 2019, Syed conducted the workshop "Character Design" at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival and North York Arts' UPTOWN KIDLIT.[15]

Early life

Syed was born in Pakistan. As she was growing up, her family moved around to different countries such as Switzerland, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, and Toronto.[2]

Education

As a child, Syed wanted to be a writer.[7] This segued into her desire to pursue art.[7] She attended Ceruleum Ecole d’arts Visuels in Lausanne, Switzerland, graduating with her BFA in Illustration in 2015.[2][16]

Controversy

In 2017, Syed received racist attacks over her depiction of a multiracial Harry Potter cast.[17] The Huffington Post as well as the BBC covered the backlash.[18][19] As the book characters' skin tone was never stated in author J.K. Rowling's manuscripts, others have cast the characters as a variety of races, including the London West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.[20]
