Summer's Greatest Hits


I am back from the US! And Berlin has already shifted to autumn. The fall is gearing up to be super busy, which is a good thing. You can keep up to speed on Patreon, where I have been posting monthly behind the scenes updates on where I'm at project-wise.

Sporadic Travel Comic - Sthlm Edition Pt. 3


That bridge is still one of my favorite bridges, and I wasn't able to make time to cross it the last time I visited. So, yay!

This marks the last of my sporadic travel comics from Stockholm this year. Hope you liked them!

Sporadic Travel Comic - Sthlm Edition Pt. 2

Last month I discovered that many restaurants in Stockholm ... don't take cash. (Which is the exact opposite of the Berlin dining experience).

***
Some news!

There is a new Electronic Beats comic up over yonder - on the topic of finding the perfect festival location in 2017!

I also moved my store to Tictail, where everything is currently 20% off for the rest of June! This includes zines (such as Master of Survival Vols. 1-3), but also original comic art AND A5 portrait commissions!
If you like my work but would like to support it via other means, I have a Patreon and have also now opened a Ko-Fi account!

Last but not least, I am teaching a comics workshop at Wedding's Jugendkunstschule from July 10 to July 14 - ages 13 and up! Signups close on June 26.

1964-2017


I drew this while in Sweden last week. Chris Cornell's music was an important part of my teenage years, as Audioslave's self-titled debut came out when I was in high school (I was a little young when Soundgarden were first active). I will miss his voice.

BETON #10



I contributed this comic to BETON's 10th issue on the theme of Work! You can pick up the new issue at BETON's stand at Comic Invasion Berlin, Berlin's local comics festival, which is taking place this weekend at Urban Spree.

And speaking of Comic Invasion Berlin, as every year, I will be there!! Once again I shall be located next to my too-talented-for-words table buddy Ash Pure, and I am working on having at least one brand-new collection of Clairikine comics, a thing which I have not put out since 2015!
Come say hello!!

And if you see me standing in line to vote at the French embassy in Berlin on Sunday morning, say hello too. (Please go vote on Sunday.)

Status Update


I'm off to France this week, as a matter of fact! Haven't been back in a year and a half. I have missed it!!

Which is it?


Fortunately, where SAD is concerned, Daylight Saving Time is just around the corner! And then those oppressively early nights will be a thing of the past. Can't do much about the rest, though.

Some news! In the time since I last posted here, I've illustrated a new comic for Electronic Beats. I was also interviewed for the season premiere of the Comic Invasion Berlin podcast and talked (in German) about this year's festival, which takes place April 24 to May 7, 2017*. If you are in town and you want to help out, the festival is currently looking for volunteers!

And finally, tabling at Comics & The Beast two weeks ago was a blast. Definitely one of my favorite comic events. Thanks to everyone who came out and bought stuff!

*Right between the first and second rounds of the French presidential elections, as it turns out. If you can vote in them, please do.

Friday Sketchpost: January Sketchnoting

In January I attended a flurry of events and endeavoured to sketch as much as I could of each one - including a reception held by the Franco-German Youth Office, a French primary runoff debate (livestreamed) and the 6th edition of salt + sass at Soundcloud. Enjoy! (I apologize in advance for the lack of translation.)

Psst... Want a monthly collection of my sketches delivered directly to your inbox? Pledges of $25 or more per month on Patreon unlock access to my digital sketchbooks!

Hourly Comic Day 2017




(Yep, I was there!)

And thus concludes another Hourly Comic Day. To see the Hourlies I made (a week late) in 2016, click here!

Also, first two comics events of the year for me this month: the new BETON issue is launching at Berlin's Raum B on February 17th. I am not in this issue, but I will be at the launch!
I also will be tabling at Comics and The Beast, Neukölln's premiere indie-comics-in-a-bar event, on February 25 & 26th! Come say hello if you are in town.

Intermission



I'm back!! And finally recovered from a two-week-long cold I caught in the US. Despite this, my month-long visit was amazing and I have brought back many cherished memories. Choosing to make stops in Chicago and D.C. on my way in and out of California was the best travel decision I made last year.

Things are hectic at the moment, but I have a comic recapping what I did in 2016 in the works and I totally ran out of time to make this a reality, sorry! In the meantime, If you would like to help me begin the new year and support the making of future comics, you can pledge to my Patreon. $2 or more per month unlock access to journal comics and to an exclusive newsletter!

I have also opened commissions for the foreseeable future - if you would like me to draw something for you, drop me a line at clairykin at gmail!
