Just six years ago, 22-year-old Julian Gray was studying a masters in psychology at university with the intention of going on to earn a PhD and to later become an academic.

But when his health deteriorated, he had no choice but to drop out of university. Diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and ME, Julian realised that his career in psychology was no longer achievable for him.

In a quest to find other things he was good at, he looked towards his childhood hobby of drawing for inspiration. Now aged 28, Julian, who lives in Droylsden, is gearing up for a massive feat: he is headlining his own exhibition at The Lowry Theatre featuring his comic and illustration works.
