Introduction Hi, my name is Heidi, I'm a freelance character designer, and visual development artist who graduated from the character animation program at the California Institute of the Arts in 2008. I was the character designer and conceptual designer for ParaNorman, and I won an Annie award for my designs in 2013. I also worked as a character designer for Henry Selick at Cinderbiter, The Jim Henson Company, and Warner Brothers Animation. I'm obsessed with music, I love just about everything (except contemporary country music!!!) You'll usually find me either drawing, sleeping, or singing obnoxiously while showering at 3 am, that sums me up quite nicely! All original artwork copyright Heidi Smith 2017.
