Laydeez Do Comics are returning to Gosh! for a special one-off evening on Monday the 11th June from 7.30-9pm, with guest speakers Janette Parris and Jeeti Singh!
For those who haven't been to a Laydeez Do Comics evening before, they are a female-led (but not female-only) graphic novel forum that meets monthly in London. They host guests to speak about their work with a focus on comic works based on life narrative, and the everyday.
This month, LDC's guests are:
Jeeti Singh is a graduate of San Francisco State University who worked as a gallery manager and practicing artist in downtown San Francisco. Moving to London to study at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, she received her MA in Fine Art. As an artist her work mixes traditional Indian symbolism and stylisation with that of contemporary comics and graphic novels. Jeeti continues her practice in London and is currently writing her first graphic novel.
Janette Parris is a contemporary artist who uses the everyday as the basis for much of her work across different media. She has been exhibited across the UK and internationally, and in 2003, she was commissioned to produce a series of works for the ‘Art on the Underground’ programme by London Underground. In 2010, Parris’s animated video Talent was shown at Tate Britain’s Rude Britannia exhibition. In 2014 Parris was a Connect10 artist for Museums At Night 2014. In 2014 her online comic Arch was exhibited in Comics Unmasked the largest comic exhibition in the UK at the British Library.
