Biscuits

Biscuits (Assorted) won the Myriad First Graphic Novel Prize in 2018.

In 2022, pages from Biscuits were shortlisted for the V&A Book Illustration award.

Biscuits (Assorted) is my first graphic novel, published in November 2020 by Myriad Editions. You can buy the book direct from me here or from your favourite reputable book or comic retailer. It’s very good I think you would like it.

Here’s the book in real life, plus some original pages – most of the original pages are available for sale, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to buy one.

It is the culmination of a lot of overlapping ideas over several years, begun with my illustration project #3point52billion. It is also a sort of love letter to London, and to its women, and their courage.

It features the overlapping stories of a number of characters including Hana – a perpetually optimistic supermarket employee, Sarah – who is spending the summer doing a data project on playgrounds with her young daughter, and keeping a secret, Clara – who has been thrust backwards into a bisexual love triangle, Maya – oversharing on public transport, Susan, Keerthika, Marissa, Jess, Almas, Samarah, Lucy, and more besides.
