Laydeez do comics

Laydeez do comics is  the first UK graphic novel forum led by women. Its focus is on comics work based on life narrative and the drama of the everyday. LDC was launched in July 2009 by  Nicola Streeten and Sarah Lightman.

Streeten and Lightman shared an interest in comics and graphic novels that were not about superheroes but were focused on the domestic and autobiographical. They felt that they couldn’t be alone and they were right! LDC now has a worldwide presence with meetings held in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, as well as closer to home in Bristol and Leeds. Artists, academics, publishers and fans from around the world are invited to speak at LDC. The evenings are a platform for people to test new works and ideas, where emerging artists present their work alongside more established practitioners, in an inspiring and friendly atmosphere. Everyone is welcome, including those with no knowledge of comics and those already immersed. Home-baked cakes are served too!

LDC London meetings are currently run by Wallis Eates and Rachael Ball

Her first graphic novel  'The Inflatable Woman' was recently published by Bloomsbury and was listed as one of the Guardian's Best Graphic Novels for 2015 and one of Paul Gravett's Top 10.                  “Read it. Inspiring. Poignant. Wonderfully unconventional” –  Sunday Telegraph.                               Her work has also  appeared in the cult comic Deadline and The Graphic Canon of Childrens Literature. Her work can be seen at the House of IIlustration's Comixatrix exhibition and at the Cartoon Museum's Great British Graphic Novel exhibition.
