This new cartoon is about my mum’s brain tumour after I was inspired by the recent BBC biopic The C Word about Lisa Lynch‘s breast cancer.  I tried to be near-silent and use natural frames rather than comic panels, an idea sparked by the Perspectives episode on War Art presented by Eddie Redmayne.  After a lot of thinking time, the actual drawing was finished in about a week while being energised by reading tweets from the 2015 Comics and Medicine Conference.  Apologies for the quality of the image, but my usual scanning process somehow didn’t work – I’ll try again when I get a chance.  Thanks to the Walton Centre, Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, Marie Curie and Cancer Research UK for support and advice.
