☆ [Coming Soon - Schedule TBD] ☆ "Comics Breakdown" videos, where I talk about my storytelling and comic creation process
I'm Claire; you might also know me as Piney. I'm an SVA graduate based in Virginia.
I'm an avid lighthouse collector, dog lover, and old house enthusiast. Oh yeah, and I'm an artist and comic creator as well!
Suriska is my main squeeze. It's a slice-of-life webcomic following two cousins living in a isolated, blink-and-you-miss-it village, as they deal with anxiety disorders, disdain for one another, and the onset of cabin fever. There's a lot of spite, a lot of soul searching, and maybe a little bit of heart. It updates weekly, as do I here, with page WIPs and exclusive behind-the-scenes material!
But why confine myself to one comic? That's no fun.
I'm frequently working on more than one comic, and WIPs and pages of my short-form comics will be posted to this page. A couple of my projects, which you can find here, have been:
Foolish Fire is a 24-page suburban fantasy about a college student searching the source of her restlessness... and for her missing older sister. The story was inspired by my own relationship with my hometown.
Reviews for Foolish Fire:
dang I wasn't expecting that. reread the whole thing and now I have literal tears on my face what the heck Claire this is so good -my best friend, Chloe
Oh, my god, I'm crying at work! -my dad
Mangoes is a 16-page comic about two roommates with superpowers who resort to unusual means of acquiring a loaf of bread when they realize they are both broke.
Reviews for Mangoes:
this is very good -my friend from Twitter, Haiz
Bought it. Excellent, of course -my dad, again
So just comic pages? That's all this is for?
Nope! Along with comics, you'll find on here exclusive behind the scenes content (for Suriska), illustration process videos, and character animations! (see $1 tier) In the near future, I also intend to make this a space to post videos breaking down the storytelling process behind my pages, if y'all ever wanted insight on how a cartoonist's mind, or just my mind, works. (see $5 tier)
Why should I support you? Where is my money going?
