Nao Brown suffers from OCD, but not the hand-washing, overly tidy type that people often refer to jokingly. Nao suffers from violent morbid obsessions, while her compulsions take the form of unseen mental rituals.

“The artwork makes me jealous, the storytelling makes me even more jealous and the watercolour painting just pisses me off! In my opinion, Glyn is the greatest English comic artist working today. Back in the early 1970s, when I was drawing comics, it was all testosterone, guns and breasts. Today I’m happy to see that graphic novels are as important to the art world as anything you might see in the Tate Modern. This book is a prime example.

Working part-time in a ‘designer’ vinyl toy shop, while struggling to get her own illustration career off the ground, she’s still searching for that elusive love – the perfect love. And in meeting the man of her dreams, she realises… dreams can be quite weird.

‘The Nao of Brown’ is Hermann Hesse meeting Norman Rockwell for a wonderful weekend of watercolour painting! The result is simply ravishing.”

Jamie Hewlett

Nao’s meditation practice is an attempt to quieten her mind and open her heart, and it’s through this that she comes to understand that things aren’t so black and white after all. In fact, they’re much more... brown.
