Colonomic by Matilda Tristram

I am really interested in how people deal with illness. For me, it is natural to try and process life experiences through drawing. It was for this reason that I was initially err.. drawn (sorry) to Matilda Tristram’s amazing Colonomic, but there is so much more to say about this very raw, touching and funny comic.

Frames from Matilda Trsitram's ColonomicAt 31, Matilda Tristram was looking forward to having her first baby. Then she discovered she had stage 3 colon cancer. Her comic chronicles her experience and the story is still unfolding on her website.  You can read her latest Colonomic at and watch a Video About Matilda on the Guardian Website. Or check out Matilda’s interview with Zoe Williams in the Guardian .

Matilda is tweeting her story from @Colonclast 

I’ve got everything crossed for her. Lxxx
