Clairikine is a French/US cartoonist celebrating over a decade of life in Berlin by going to the woods as much as possible. She makes comics about liminal spaces and being at home everywhere and nowhere at the same time.

Self-published work includes Master of Survival, about Clairikine’s first nine months in Berlin as a grad student; For The Ones That We Love, a collection of short stories set in a fictional universe; and The Person You’ve Never Met, a series of illustrations about wanting to see someone again and getting to know oneself. She has also contributed stories to zines by the Franco-German collective BETON and the Feministisches Comics Netzwerk.

Clairikine is also the director’s assistant at ComicInvasion, co-organizes the comics meetup Panel Up, and in the Before Times could occasionally be found sketchnoting in person at various events. You can keep up with their work and what they’re reading, writing and binge-watching at and other online venues.
