I am Clare Thompson, an Illustrator based in North-West England. I create handmade artwork and publish graphic novels, comics and picturebooks under my independent label C.P.Thompson Press. I like to experiment with composition and form. I often look for ways to combine different techniques to enhance a narrative message or create elements of juxtaposition. I aim to explore what it is to be human, particularly in a digital, material age. Our inbuilt desire to be connected to nature, ideas around play and creativity, societal structures and relationships are themes that fascinate me and that I seek to examine in my work.
