Heta is from Helsinki, Finland and is a part time illustrator with a focus on comics/cartoons. She heard about this project from a former classmate and got excited right away. The Frozen-Ground Cartoon project was an opportunity to work with something unfamiliar, the permafrost science, as well as sustainable development through comics which was more familiar to her.
