Billie Scott is an artist. Her debut gallery exhibition launches in a few months. Within the fortnight she'll be completely blind.
Zoe Thorogood's first graphic novel The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott is a story about what it's like to get something you want, have it immediately taken away from you and then how you can put it all back together again in unexpected ways. Set in a world of people down and out in Newcastle and London, it's a graphic novel that speaks to the problems facing many of those left behind in post-austerity Britain.
