Launched by illustrator/author Nicola Streeten and artist/curator Sarah Lightman, Laydeez Do Comics run a regular stream of evening events in London and several other places, and provides a platform for both emerging and established artists to present and test their ideas.
I’ve been hearing wonderful things about this forum for several months, from a host of different sources. This is probably because Laydeez Do Comics is the first women-led graphic-novel forum in the UK, and, let’s be honest, ‘first’ ‘women-led’ ‘graphic-novel’ – how was this ever going to be anything less than awesome?!
So I was thinking to myself that I must drop the Laydeez a line of introduction and say hello, and was just about to do that when into my inbox dropped the very same email from Nicola herself.
I’m a bit of an ‘energy flow’ person, so I really do like it when alignments like that happen. It’s also very flattering when people actively seek you out because they want to know more about your work. So I’m very much looking forward to speaking at a Laydeez event later this year and to meeting this renowned like-cake-minded community.
