Tsubaki Nekoi (猫井 椿, Nekoi Tsubaki, born January 21, 1969), formerly Mick Nekoi (猫井 みっく, Nekoi Mikku), is a member of the all-female manga-creating team Clamp.[1] She is the co-director and her duties in the team include applying screentones and correcting manga illustrations.[citation needed] She was also the lead artist (a role that normally falls to Mokona) on Legal Drug, The One I Love, Wish, Suki and xxxHolic. As the lead artist in xxxHolic, she is in charge of drawing the male characters while Mokona is responsible for the female characters.[citation needed]

For Clamp's 15th Anniversary in 2004, she and the other three members of Clamp changed their names because they reportedly wished to try new monikers.[2]
