I had the best time at Comic Street 2017! This is the third such event to have been held in Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall – an open air independent comic showcase where local creators proudly display the comics they’ve made!
I was proud to debut Rose #6 there and people seemed to really like the latest escapades of the world’s hungriest redhead.
The day absolutely flew by as people kept coming to the table to see what this Rose stuff was all about, and once again I must apologise to my lovely table neighbours Sheree, Tim and Ed who must have heard my “Rose is a young woman who loves food, her friends, food, animals, food, her family (sometimes), food, food…” spiel a million times. 😉 So sorry I didn’t take any more photos!
Highlights of the day include:
A girl who bought issue one, then her brother came back a few minutes later to ask for issue two, which I have long sold out, but I advised them they could try Ace Comics up the road for a copy. They came back a while later to get not only issue two signed, but Ace’s last copy of issue three! How cool is that!
The kids who talked to me about how they’re getting taught how to make comics in school – I am seriously so jealous of this! I kept getting in trouble at school for drawing comics – and later just stopped going to school once a comic shop opened up across the road – but now they’re teaching kids in school! Very awesome 🙂 There were lots of kids who told me about comics they are making – and the next generation of talent is already shaping up to be incredible!
The parents who came over because Rose looked like something their children (or grandchildren) would enjoy, and ended up having a laugh while flicking through the latest issue – success!
Thank you everyone who came out to say hello! I can’t wait to see you all at the next event!
PS: I drew some sketches while I was there so here they are:
