of boundaries

The sadness of
not being able to connect
makes me sorry
makes me sad

the thought of
paths to not tread
in heart and head

the knowledge of you knowing me
seeing things I don't want you to see
it takes away too much from me
I'd rather it not live

I try to be open and kind
and share a part of the divine
but I know all too well what's mine
and I can't let you draw the line.

Random Friday Post: Bedroom Sketch

A little inking exercise I did last week.
I've lived in this room for nearly two years. That hasn't happened since I finished high school. I like living in it.

I'm still taking commissions! Details here.

Also, I'm looking for a German musician who would be interested in collaborating with me on a comic-and-music project for a Franco-German grant. The application deadline for the grant itself is October 31st, 2012. More on it over here! Done and done!

As a disclaimer: I wrote this back in June. Always put a buffer on your emo comics, that's how I roll.

Have you checked out The Help Claire Pay For Things Drive?

Thursday Workpost: Entrails

Visiting Lyon.

"But... these are cow guts!!!" "What do you think Currywurst is made of?"

My job's newsletter for October is out, and with it a cartoon introducing the Franco-German comics workshop I will be hosting on the 31st (scroll down a tad), possibly disguised as Lisbeth Salander. Holla!!

Incidentally, cow intestines are actually a culinary specialty in Lyon, one of the towns where I grew up and proceeded to come back to for college. I find Berlin's Currywurst to be just as appetizing.

Still doing that fundraiser for to not be flat broke at the end of the year! I draw Sherlock and John like it's nobody's business, so check it out. Also, it is possible to donate euros (and dollahs, pounds, kronor etc) by clicking on the "Buy me coffee?" button. I would be much obliged. Très obligée.* Etc.

Sturm und Drang

"Yeah, I think 'Sturm und Drang' is a pretty dodgy name though..."
"You mean Goethe's literary movement?"
"... I think I'm going to go hide. If it's not too late?"

Sturm und Drang is a restaurant in Frankfurt. This was not made apparent during the composing of this comic.

This past June I had the opportunity to delve once again into territory far from my Central European home and take a look at ... Frankfurt. It was an awesome weekend (though I barely got any real sleep) and I was able to connect with peeps and take in the sights. I'd do it again (for longer) if I could. So this is what the next few comics will be about!

The first night I got there was the European Cup semifinal against Italy, as well as some kind of Supreme Court decision on Obamacare, so we all watched the game and then got to see the news about America during halftime. (At first I misunderstood and thought the bill had been struck down. Which would have sucked.)

See you Friday!

Also: I am currently selling commissioned drawings and minicomics! More details on this post. Shipping to Berlin comes free with commissions!
