Ryan Heshka

Featured Guests

Ryan Heshka was born in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, and grew up in Winnipeg. Fuelled by long prairie winters, his childhood was spent drawing, building cardboard cities and making super 8mm films. Early influences that persist to this day include antiquated comics and pulp magazines, natural history, graphic design, music, movies and animation. Formally trained in interior design, he is self-taught as an artist. Heshka’s personal artwork has graced the cover and interiors of BLAB! magazine and numerous art publications around the globe, and his paintings have been exhibited in galleries across North America and Europe. ?Mean Girls Club: Pink Dawn?, the follow up graphic novel to the cult comic, was released in 2018 by Nobrow (UK). His illustration work has appeared in Vanity Fair, Playboy, Esquire, the New York Times and the New Yorker, and he has had two children’s books published by Henry Holt and Company (New York). He lives in Vancouver, B.C., Canada with his wife Marinda, and their daughter Roxy.
