I’m Clara Lucie Jetsmark, a comic creator and illustrator from Denmark with a bachelors degree in Graphic Storytelling from The Animation Workshop.
My work ranges between personal poetic art comics, absurd comedies and magic-realistic tales - like My Dead Mother, published by Uncivilized Books, that received a danish Ping Prize Award in 2017 - to political comics essays and commission work - like "The story of Jennifer", a campaign comic about human trafficking in Denmark, for the non-profit organisation, Reden International.
I am currently working as a freelance illustrator and animator and open for freelance work.
Also I am always interested in collaboration, so if you are a writer or someone with a good idea, you are welcome to reach out to me!
