Jem Milton's headshot

I am a non-binary artist based in Glasgow. I make illustrations, comics and infographics, graphic recording and run workshops. I have led workshops at events such as Storycon and Ghost Con, and recently led interactive storytelling workshops with women at Willow to create a comic book called Beyond This Place.  I also make a webcomic called The Flying Ship, a queer fantasy adventure story inspired by Slavic folklore.
