Heidi Berton is a freelance illustrator living and working in Toronto's east end. She loves screen printing, comics, bright colours and goofy characters with big emotions. When she is not drawing, you can probably find her watching old reruns of reality TV, or spilling coffee on herself.
I always have a couple sketchbooks going at once where I keep ideas floating around when I am not currently working on any specific project. My illustrations focus on shape and colour, while usually concentrating on figures. I don't draw realistically so I embrace the freedom I have with drawing and exaggerating human bodies, using them to create shapes and fill spaces, creating characters that are fairly indistinctive, and in turn, hopefully relatable.
