About

Horseback riding in Montana.Heather L. Gilbraith is an artist, illustrator, and writer living and working in Vancouver, BC with her husband and her partner in crime, her crested gecko, Squishy. She received her Bachelors in Fine Arts at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2015 where she majored in Illustration.

Since obtaining her BFA she started writing and drawing her own webcomic, Sable & Aster, a story about a young orphaned girl and her best friend who happens to be a dragon. The story is ever evolving, but Heather’s excited to see where it leads. You can read the first chapter of Sable & Aster starting here.

She also collaborates with the inimitable writer and comedian Eric Fell on The Critical Hit Show Comic, a comic version of the hilarious and fantastic roleplaying game-based improv comedy show The Critical Hit Show, which plays at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver at the end of every month.

She’s a huge dog lover, and works on and off at a doggie day care where she can release all of her pent up dog love at once on a few dozen wonderful dogs rather than subject random people to her dog crazy energy out on the street where, otherwise, their dogs would not be safe.

In addition to comics, illustration, and storyboarding she’s also a huge fan of ceramics (wheel throwing, primarily) and printmaking (intaglio and relief), though it’s harder to do those things when you don’t have access to a studio.
