Eleanor Crewes is a London-based illustrator and writer. She graduated from Illustration at University of The Arts London in 2016. The Times I Knew I Was Gay was first created as a hand-stitched zine which Crewes biked across London to various comic shops. As demand grew her zine developed into a larger book that she published in 2018 with Good Comics. After selling out the first edition, Crewes expanded it into a fully-fledged memoir with Virago and Scribner for publication in 2020. Crewes currently lives in North London and is working on a children's graphic novel.
