I’m Azby Whitecalf, I’m an Plains Cree Character Designer and Illustrator based out of North Battleford, Saskatchewan Treaty 6 Territory. I have a Bachelor Degree in Visual Communication (Character Design) from the Alberta University of the Arts.
My practice revolves creating fun and exciting stories with memorable and unique characters. An important part of my practice is that I am creating accurate and positive representation of Indigenous peoples and cultures and exploring what it is to portray Indigenous people in a way that captures their multi dimensional identity. I enjoy working with bright colours, strong contrast and fun shapes.
I would love to work on children’s books, cartoon storyboards and character development, comics and graphic novels.
