I am Kathrine Avraam, a greek freelance illustrator and comic artist based in Angoulême, France.

I love contrasting soft rounded shapes to hard pointed edges, mixing textures and blending colors. I care for shaping the abstract so as to convey meaning.

I draw short stories, mostly autofictional, design weird-shaped characters and work as a comic books’ colorist. Currently I’m searching to work as an illustrator for newspapers and magazines, as well as poster’s designer to broaden my expertise.
