“A Day in the Life” with Toronto Artist Haley Millman

Haley Millman is an emerging illustrator and comic artist. Comics were her passion from a young age and after attending one year at OCAD, she attended the Illustration for Sequential Arts program at Max the Mutt, from which she graduated in 2016. As a Jewish and disabled artist, Haley tries to display the diversity of Toronto in her work and comics, making sure it shows a true representation of the city and its inhabitants. Haley has a strong appreciation for the Horror genre and draws a lot of her inspiration from the EC Comic-era style of horror comic. She has exhibited at the Toronto Comics Art Festival, published in 2015’s Then It Was Dark comic anthology and has assisted with designs for products with Holt Renfrew.
