Heidi Burton is an illustrator based in Cambridge. She creates surreal human moments, using both digital and traditional methods of illustration, producing original artwork, digital prints, altered Moleskine journals, greeting card design, book and magazine illustration.
I love Heidi’s use of details and texture in strands of hair and feathers…
This illustration below of the girl pouring tea amongst the clouds/washing line is my absolute favourite. It reminds me of something from the magical Howls Moving Castle I could stare at it for days, imagining childhood games.
Heidi also customises Moleskine notebooks with her intricate drawings and whimsical cut outs…
