Interface (novel) London, UK
My debut graphic novel, Interface, will be published by Virago. Drawn from the topical themes that I’ve pitched over years working as a political cartoonist, it’s a sci-fi romance/satire, exploring social divisions and human parallels.
As a cartoonist, I draw from fiction, topical events or interview testimony, to create dark and spikey visual narratives. Staff cartoonist for The Times Literary Supplement for three years, my other clients include The Sunday Times, The Financial Times, The BBC, The Guardian & The Observer. Solo exhibitions of my drawings were held at Christie’s (2019) and The French Cultural Institute (2019). I’ve illustrated two books for Harper Collins (by Virginia Woolf and by Lee Child) and animated a BBC4 documentary. I’ve collaborated repeatedly with Médecins Sans Frontières – drawing on location in Lebanon and South Sudan. I’m a London Library Emerging Writer (2020-2021) and was The BCA’s Young Cartoonist of the Year (2017). Now 26, I graduated from The University of Oxford with a First in English Literature and a thesis on the gutter between a comics panels.
