I was invited to visually document and respond to the ‘Graphic Details Symposium’ at JW3. Through my association with Laydeez do Comics, who had an evening slot at the symposium, I felt an intimate and personal connection to the subject matter and speakers. For this work,
my process involved live drawing of the speakers and their slides. Also included are responses to the illustrative works associated with the event, the exhibition newspaper/catalogue and ‘Graphic Details’ text, edited by Sarah Lightman. For me, drawing them allows me to absorb
a different aspect of the work. The themes that resonated with me from the symposium were those of memory and vulnerability. Responding to these themes through the fragility and immediacy of live drawing, and the nostalgia and immediacy of Polaroid photographs ties in with my drawing style
of capturing a moment.

More about this publication?
Studies in Comics aims to describe the nature of comics, to identify the medium as a distinct art form, and to address the medium's formal properties. The emerging field of comics studies is a model for interdisciplinary research and in this spirit this journal welcomes all approaches. This journal is international in scope and provides an inclusive space in which researchers from all backgrounds can present new thinking on comics to a global audience. The journal will promote the close analysis of the comics page/text using a variety of methodologies. Its specific goal, however, is to expand the relationship between comics and theory and to articulate a "theory of comics". The journal also includes reviews of new comics, criticism, and exhibitions, and a dedicated online space for cutting-edge and emergent creative work.
