Kat had no responsibilities and nothing to tie her down. But she had graduated university with no plans. She was an artist who hadn’t drawn in five years. She was lost.
What’s more, she’d been avoiding admitting to herself something that all those around her knew; that her boyfriend, Richard, has a serious problem with alcohol.
Looking for a fresh start, the two of them quit Mexico for what they expected to be an adventure of a lifetime. It led to experiences that changed both their lives and to Kat rediscovering a love of art, a lifelong attachment to Mexico and the strength to move on.
A beautifully illustrated recounting of a trip Chapman made to the country in 2003, graphic novel debut Follow Me In is part memoir, part coming of age story, part love letter to Mexico from one of the best illustrators and comic makers in the UK
