Hello! Thanks for clicking through. My name is Carina Santos, and I am based between Manila and London. I have been an artist, designer, and writer for as long as I can remember, and it's amazing how many possibilities this life has given me.

I am currently waiting on a visa to come through, so I set up this account as a way to help me afford to live here, as I am currently unable to get full-time employment. I have always created things, and one of the greatest joys of that has been sharing it with others. It's always amazing to see people connect and engage with the work that I make.

Apart from the little things I make — comics and zines, tiny books and paintings, some essays here and there — I am working on several books, which are hopefully going to be much more substantial than the pamphlet-length things I have made so far. One is meant to be an extension of my MRes thesis on subjectivity and space and the other, a collection of coming of age comics, thematically heavy on displacement, loneliness, and connections.

The internet has been a very big part of my own coming of age, as some of you may already know. I began writing and documenting parts of my life in 2002. I'd love to be able to continue it, alongside my practice as an artist, designer, and writer, with all of you.
