In this issue we continue our new comic genre Graphic Lit with an autobiographical comic poem by Grace Desmarais titled Tubes. Grace’s work gives her readers a deeply personal view into her experience of living with Chronic illnesses. Tubes, a hospital diary, is a poignant atmospheric poem allowing us as readers to gain a unique insight into her experience through her unique artistic voice and storytelling style. Grace talks further about her art, physical struggles, and creative inspirations in our interview.
I hope this latest expansion of the Graphic Lit genre at Solstice is eye-opening, and leaves you wanting more as we are just getting started with this exciting form.
