Claudia Chinyere Akole (@claudinsky) is an exhibiting artist, freelance illustrator, designer, animator, and cartoonist based in Sydney, Australia (traditional lands of the Gadigal and Wangal peoples of the Eora Nation). She works as a graphic designer in TV broadcast, teaches comic-making workshops to high school students from migrant and refugee backgrounds through the NSW organization STARTTS, and creates illustrations and comics in her personal practice. She’s an art hag who bleeds pinkā€”and a notorious crybaby with work that tends to cover cultural identity, loneliness, abstraction, and mental health. See her work at
