Elk Paauw

Master of Arts in Visual and Critical Studies

Hello, there! I’m Elk Paauw, self-published Seattle comics artist and queer transguy (he/him/his pronouns). I perform regularly as half of the cartoon band Spooky Action, and I host a monthly international animated children’s film series called Saturday Morning Cartoons at SIFF Cinema Uptown in Seattle, Washington. I’m here in Chicago until I chase after a PhD. Most of my work considers identity and the self, and my thesis website 4dtime.space is a blend of comics, geometry, and existentialism, and is a preamble to what I call a trans metaphysics.
