About Katie Heckey

Hi, I'm Katie.

I'm an artist living in LA and working at Cartoon Network Studios as a Background Designer on Craig of the Creek. I'm brainy and adventurous: I love hiking, indoor rock climbing, yoga, running, Dungeons and Dragons, travel, and time with friends.

I've been a designer in the animation industry for 4 years and worked on both 2D and CG productions. I think that gives me a good head for a wide range of pipelines and a willingness to solve problems and learn new software. I always try to bring strong draftsmanship, a playful sense of color, and inspiration from my wanderings.

My most important values are honesty, family, and keeping things in perspective when life gets absurd. My life goals are to section hike the entire length of the Pacific Crest Trail (2,650 mi/4,265 km), to complete a “loop” around the world (in pieces), to write a comic book, to pitch an animated series, and to illustrate a children’s book.

Hit me up at kheckey@gmail.com if you have questions about work, freelance, or just to say hello. Thanks for reading!
