The Art of On a Sunbeam: A Tillie Walden Exhibition 21st September – 4th October

Tillie Walden’s queer space-opera tells the story of Mia, from her life as a rebellious schoolgirl, to her time as part of the crew on the ship Aktis, out in the deepest reaches of space, rebuilding beautiful and broken down structures. Part love story, part epic space adventure, and dealing with Tillie’s now signature themes of sexuality & gender, the individual in landscape, first love and awesome cats; On a Sunbeam is a masterpiece of modern comics and arguably Tillie’s greatest artistic statement so far.

Coinciding with the release of this major new graphic novel from Avery Hill Publishing, a collection of original pages from On a Sunbeam and a selection of other classic Tillie Walden works will be on display in the Orbital Gallery from 21st September until 4th October.
