My name is Clare Thompson. I am an Illustrator and Visual Storyteller 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. A common thread that runs through my work is an interest in employing and
combining hand-made techniques, and experimenting with the ways in which they can serve to either enhance a narrative or create elements of juxtaposition.
Through my chosen media, 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 personal relationship dynamics are all themes that fascinate me and that I seek to examine in my work.
