Status Report

A four-panel comic in black and white, entitled "2022 Year In Review". The first panel has the caption "smiling wider" and shows Claire as seen in a Zoom call, drawing at their desk and smiling into the camera. The second panel has the caption "crying more" and shows Claire walking down Kaiserdamm street in Berlin wearing a hoodie, jeans jacket and jeans and Chucks, listening to music on her phone and crying. In the third panel, with the caption "laughing deeper", Claire is sitting on the U-Bahn, looking at something on her phone and laughing loudly ("Huh-HA-HA-HA") while someone sitting next to her looks at them. In the fourth panel, with the caption "and crying more", we see Claire sitting on the couch at home, clutching a stuffed IKEA shark, and sobbing.

Yeah girl, access those emotions stored in the body!! Wait, what do you mean they're a package deal ­čą▓

Friday Fanart: Still Jealous (Tegan and Sara)


a black and white cartoon of Claire lying on a bed in the dark, wearing pajamas, looking up at the ceiling, arms folded under her chest. Next to her on the bed is a heart. Placed all around the bed are lyrics from Tegan and Sara's "I Can't Take It": "I can't take it, I can't take it, I can't take it, I can't take it, I can whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, I can whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa"

[ Tegan and Sara - I Can't Take It (Tegan's version) ]

A black-and-white ink drawing of Claire, a white person with messy chin-length hair, wearing a plaid T-shirt, skinny jeans and Chucks, as they are seen from the side standing up, expresssionless, holding a classically shaped heart in one hand. The handwritten captions are lyrics from Tegan and Sara's "So Jealous": "Do you see my problem if I never explain it?"
A year ago Still Jealous was released, a re-recording of Tegan and Sara's classic So Jealous album where each recorded their own own version of the other's songs. I of course made some fanart for it because these songs still resonated with me like nothing else does, 15+ years after I heard them for the first time. Also this week I believe there was an international holiday, something to do with hearts?
I'm thrilled to be part of the 24 Stunden Comic Tag am Wannsee exhibit at Berlin's neurotitan galerie from February 18 to March 11! I will be exhibiting original pages from my comic written and penciled during the 2019 edition, and selling the brand-new zine of that comic!! If you're in Berlin, there's a chance I'll see you at the vernissage, Saturday, February 18 from 18:00! I must say I am psyched to be exhibiting in a place like this! Aah! Do drop by!
