An artist with chinlength hair, wearing a backwards cap, a striped crop top and shorts, sits on the edge of a bed, viewed from behind. She is holding a paintbrush and working on a canvas on a desk in front of her. The desk also has a laptop, plants, and empty drinks cans and bottles on it. Several drawings are taped to the orange walls.

  • £12.99

Billie Scott is an artist. Her debut gallery exhibition opens in a few months. Within a fortnight she'll be completely blind.

Zoe Thorogood's first graphic novel is a story about what it's like to get something you want, have it immediately taken away from you and then how you put it all back together again. Set in a world of people down on their luck from Middlesbrough to London, it's a graphic novel that speaks of post-austerity Britain and the problems facing those left behind.
