Panel Borders: Depicting the personal

Panel Borders: Depicting the personal

Continuing our month of shows looking at British comics, we have a pair of interviews about artists who examine their personal life and feelings as a subject for their art. Cartoonist Richy K. Chandler talks to Simone Lia about her new graphic novel, Please God, find me a husband!, which explores Simone’s faith and search for a partner. Critic and writer Columba Quigley talks to fine artist Josephine King about her paintings which combine self portrait with text and references to Renaissance narrative art.
