Hi, I'm Maria Photinakis.
I'm a cartoonist and memoirist, and my work is largely about my life as a first-generation American of Greek parents, and a parent of a young child myself, my fears about and the fight against climate change, and my dreams of the far-off future.
I am working on a graphic novel about expectations and failure as a first-generation American, as well as my ongoing pandemic journal Extraordinary Times.
🌟 New print products available — Several art prints that were out of stock are now back in print. I also have some postcard sets for sale as well.
Check out my Waltham Open Studios 2020 video interview below. I talk a little bit about my process and what it’s been like creating in the middle of a pandemic.
[January 2021] I just did a massive overhaul of my website, let me know if you find anything weird, like broken links.
