VCD – Character Design & Illustration


I’m Azby Whitecalf, I’m an Plains Cree Character Designer and Illustrator based out of North Battleford, Saskatchewan Treaty 6 Territory. 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.


My large part of my practice revolves round telling the story of Indigenous people, and putting their narratives in genres they've never been before.


My practice involves working with sexual positivity, and sexual intimacy. I use bright colors and fun dynamic characters to tell my stories.
