My New York diary
Julie Doucetis widely regarded as one of the top female cartoonists working in graphic novels. She has worked with Drawn & Quarterly since 1990 and has published 5 graphic novels. As well, editions of Doucet's books have been published in Japan, France, Germany, Italy, and Finland, and her original artwork has been exhibited across the world. Her next new project with D&Q will be the publication of her daily diary, set for a publication date of early 2005. It's 1991 and Julie Doucet abruptly packs her bags and moves to New York City. Trouble follows: a jealous boyfriend, insecurity about her art, worsening epilepsy, and a tendency to self-medicate with booze and drugs. One of D+Q's backlist bestsellers comes back with a new cover design by legendary cartoonist Julie Doucet.
