Helen Gomez is a Belfast-based LGBT+ cartoonist, zine-maker and multidisciplinary artist. Commissioned by Outburst, this series of large scale cartoon works responds not only to the themes of this year’s festival, but also to Helen’s recent experiences of adapting their art practice after becoming disabled with long Covid, having contracted Covid in March 2020.

Influenced by queer and indie autobiographical comics, punk zines and animation, and focusing on post-capitalism, trans rights, crip theory, housing and welfare rights and projects to support the local artist economy, Helen is one of the most vital queer cartoonist emerging from the burgeoning scene in Belfast.

They are supported in this project by production assistant Sam Mulrine.
