Come and join us for a talk given by illustrator and writer of ‘Billy, Me &You’, Nicola Streeten. Nicola began work on her graphic memoir, Billy, Me & You in 2007. It was published in 2011 in the UK by Myriad Editions, with a Spanish edition published in 2013 by Norma Editorial. In September 2012 it was awarded Highly commended in the Popular Medicine category of the British Medical Association Medical Book Awards 2012. Chapters of the memoir were first published in Liquorice Magazine, a comic/zine that Nicola produced with her daughter Sally Plowman.
It is the first long form graphic memoir by a British woman to have been published. Specialist areas are the application of a cartoon style to maps, buildings and people. Most of Nicola’s illustration work incorporates text and image. Illustrations have been commissioned by publishers, businesses, charities and private clients.
