The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this graphic novel when I opened it. The art is rough, and raw, and the story didn’t hook me right away. I soon found myself drawn in as Billie started to describe her struggle with imposter’s syndrome, something a lot (if not all) of us creatives go through … [Read more…]
