Sheida Shekarian.
I’m an illustrator with a passion for expressing the human experience through humour, memory and physical surroundings. I love any form of creativity that evokes a feeling of nostalgia. I’ve worked as a campaign photoshoot producer, graphic designer and illustrator and despite my deep interest and admiration for all creative fields, I always find myself drawn back to the illustration world.
I’m based just outside of Toronto but was born and raised in Iran. The unwavering humour of the Iranian people as a form of coping mechanism during hardships has influenced much of my character and creative work as an illustrator.
