Rose and Ber Venture Into The Wilderness

I never saw the fuss with camping. All that mucking about to go lie on the ground and have twigs poking into your back while you read a book! You can read a book in the park and then order a pizza for much less hassle. Maybe some people like the challenge of depriving themselves of life’s essentials like a roof above their head or not having to worry about the tent falling apart because you’re not sure the pegs are in right.

Rose Breaks The Microwave Rules

The office Microwave is a political nightmare, when you think about it. Are you allowed to take other people’s stuff out if they’re not there and you’re waiting? What if it’s not microwaved enough? What if you make a call to bung it back in for another minute and then it’s microwaved TOO MUCH? And what kind of work friendship do you need to have to be able to handle someone else’s food? It’s all just too much sometimes and it’s no wonder I just go to the Bahn Mi place across the road instead.

Rose Gets A Boyfriend

The subject of Rose getting a boyfriend comes up all the time, but I know where her heart really lies.

For those who are unaware, the Milky Bar kid is a pretty cool guy! He is a 10 year old cowboy who is also generous with delicious white chocolate bars, check him out!

Rose Gets Diagnosed

For the last few weeks I have had to have eggs for breakfast every morning and right now if my doctor said I could be allergic to eggs I would be HAPPY AS LARRY right now let me tell you.

Then again now that I think about it I could totally go for a egg salad right now I wonder if they do delivery.

Oz Comic-Con Brisbane 2017 was a Treat!

Hello! I have finally recovered from one of the most hectic, fun-packed convention weekends in recent memory, and wanted to share it with you!

This was the first Oz Comic-Con that Rose and I exhibited at, so I really had no idea what to expect. It turned out that what I should have expected was great crowds of people who were into comics and loved to have a chat about the world’s hungriest redhead!

Rose #6 and Rose Collection were the big hits of the table, so thank you everyone who took a chance on those books (and if you didn’t make it, they’re now available in our shop!). Big apologies to my table neighbours and booth helpers who had to hear my one-line explanation of what Rose is over and over and over andΒ over again.

On the Saturday I did a How To Make Mini Comics workshop – and you can watch it here! Skip to the three hour and seven minute mark πŸ™‚

And on Sunday I did a panel with my pal Scott at Agent-X comics about how to get your comics online, which is a subject I can talk about for hours! Thank you everyone who attended and asked questions, it was a ton of fun. We talked about what to do if someone steals your ideas, how to format your comic for the web, how to make money doing comics online (obligatory link to my Patreon!) and whether or not to pander to your audience. I love doing panels!

I really hope I didn’t hog the mic too much πŸ™‚

It was so awesome meeting everyone who visited the Rose table! It’s always great to see people read Rose and like what they see. It’s especially cool hearing from people who have started to make comics themselves! We had great chats about pizza dogs (put a sausage on a pizza, roll the pizza around it, BAM WELCOME TO FLAVOUR COUNTRY), muffins v cupcakes (I am a big fan of Nicola’s suggestion that they merge into cuffins) and how much fun comics can be. If you’re a new reader, welcome! Drop me a line or check out our Facebook page πŸ™‚

Thank you to Sabrina, Scott, Julie & Fez, Nicola, Sarah, Kay and Frank for making this such a fun show, and of course everyone I talked to over the weekend – fellow creators, store owners and the friendly OCC staff and volunteers who kept things running so smoothly!

I am so pumped for the future of Rose. Join me, won’t you? πŸ™‚
