The Water Lover

The Water Lover is a hand-drawn slideshow by graphic novelist Patrick Allaby.

An ever-shifting work that has been performed and evolving since 2016, The Water Lover chronicles Allaby’s diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes, and the experience of living with chronic illness. It is also a plea for universal pharmacare.

This slideshow contains approximately 550 drawings, in colour and black and white.
