Sheree Domingo, born 1989, is a freelance illustrator
and comic book author.
She was a finalist for the Berthold Leibinger Stiftung Comic Book Prize in 2016 with her project “Wie im Paradies,” which evolved into her debut “Ferngespräch” (2019, Edition Moderne), and was awarded the Grimmelshausen Fellowship Prize in 2021. The half-autobiographical, half-fictional story combines the themes of labour migration, care work, and loneliness in old age. Her comics have appeared in Le Monde Diplomatique and Berliner Zeitung, among others. She also publishes short, self-published comic zines and is part of the artist collective
“Die Goldene Discofaust”.
Her feminist attitude runs through all her work, both freelance and commissioned, for example for Missy Magazine, AWO or the Young Islam Conference. As a comic artist, she works with the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin, the University of Tübingen and others. Here, comics serve as a link between science and society by making the ethical questions raised by genome editing accessible to a broader public. The “Zukunft Mensch” project received the Tübingen Young Scientists Award for Science Communication (2021). Just like comics, visual recordings, i.e. visual documentation in real-time, are a symbiosis and image and text. Whether as a visual recorder at lectures, meetings and workshops or as a visual process facilitator for various projects – visual thinking and sketchnotes are her specialities.
