Sydney Padua cartoon film animator, and illustrator. 1998, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Sydney Padua is also author illustrator of publications including the graphic novel "The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage" published by Particular Books 2005 (Penguin). The book is loosely connected to the story of the daughter of poet Lord Byron, Ada Lovelace a mathematician, and Professor Charles Babbage the inventor of the first computer in Victorian times.
Lord Byron was married briefly to Anne Isabella Byron and they had one daughter in their marriage Ada Lovelace. She became a mathematician, who worked on Charles Babbage programmable computer (Analytical Engine). Ada Lovelace wrote possibly the first algorithm for Babbage's computer and may have a strong claim to being the first computer programmer!
