Cartoon: Carolin Gödeke’s cartoons are inspired by daily life and its contradictions and complexities.
She works to find out what’s the essence of a special situation and to transform the personal into a general item. She
is especially interested in the meetings of different characters and their communication. Her cartoons are sometimes relying
on a kind of "visual diary", but are transcending the emotional patterns into symbolic and surreal or even fantastic
dimensions. Every situation is containing a metaphysical or archetypical aspect.
Carolin Gödekes cartoons are expressive line drawings with ink on paper. Are you already having a special scene in
