Sat August 16th, Comica Comiket – sharing space on Myriad Editions table at British Library.
I will be working on my book for Myriad Editions this year so will be unlikely to be taking part in many events.
2013: The Phoenix Project (Surviving Cancer): I was commissioned to create a comic in response to interviews with cancer patients about their experiences around relationships and sex after cancer treatment. My work can be seen here.
I’ll also be taking part in the ‘Quick Strips’ panel with Myriad Editions on the Sat eve at The Box: http://www.comicartfestival.com/quick-strips/
