Join the French Institute in London for a Drink & Draw session with comic artists Nicolas Puzenat and Una on Friday, June 4th. This event provides an opportunity to enjoy a drink, interact with graphic novelists and illustrators who are making an impact on the French and British comics scene, and participate in a special drawing class.

French Comics Drink and Draw

Meet French graphic novelist Nicolas Puzenat and award-winning writer and artist Louisa Parker, also known as Una. This unique gathering will involve drawing and informal discussions about their art, style, and techniques as they lead you through a drawing session.

Meet the Artists

Nicolas Puzenat is a French graphic novelist. After studying literature, he taught in France, Belgium, and Latin America. Notably, he taught in Buenos Aires, where his first graphic novel, "Espèces invasives," was set. It was published in 2019 by Éditions Sarbacane.

In 2021, he published "MégaFauna," a critically acclaimed philosophical fable selected for the Utopiales and Angoulême festivals. The second part of "MégaFauna," "Le Livre des délices et des infortunes," was published last year by Sarbacane.

Una is a writer and artist who has authored four graphic novels: Eve (2021, Virago Press), Becoming Unbecoming (2015, Myriad Editions), On Sanity: One Day In Two Lives (2017), and The Cree (2018, Mayfly Press). Her first book, Becoming Unbecoming, has been widely translated and adapted into a play in Brazil. She was also awarded a Prix Artemisia in France and is taught in schools and universities around the world.

Una has appeared on BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour and Radio 3 Free Thinking. She holds a Ph.D and has conducted post-doctoral research as a Visiting Scholar at the Oxford Centre for Life Writing. Una's community projects focus on creative life story work with groups and individuals who have important stories to tell. She works from a garden shed in Leeds and is currently working on her first prose novel with support from SOA.
