The latest news from the world of Rose
Hello! Today I am very excited to announce that I’m hosting not one but TWO events at Brisbane’s upcoming Oz Comic-Con September 23 and 24! So now you have even MORE reasons to come by and say hi!
On 3PM Saturday 23 September at the Toys ‘R Us Community Stage I will be hosting a panel about “Creating and publishing your own comics online”! Since you are reading my comic that I put online I can guess that you are already familiar with the subject, but it turns out there are plenty of people who aren’t! Myself and Scott “Agent X” Hampson will be there to talk about how webcomics work, some easy ways to get your comics on the internet and how to promote your work in a world where hundreds of thousands of talented people are doing the exact same thing! Come along and bring your questions because this is a subject I absolutely love talking about!
The day after that (that’s Sunday, I just checked) at 3PM at the Twitch Workshop Stage I am hosting a How To Make Mini Comics Workshop! It will be a one hour version of the workshops I do from time to time, where I teach you the process and skills to make a mini comic of your very own that you can show off! There are always tons of fun and I love seeing the wild and wonderful creations everyone comes up with.
Of course I’ll be exhibiting in Artist’s Alley all during the weekend, so it would be great to see you there!
I have some great news! We’ll be at Brisbane’s Oz Comic-Con this September 23 and 24, and hopefully you will be too!
I’ll have all the latest Rose comics (including the recently released Rose #6 and the awesome Rose Collection) and doing sketches of any character you like – as long as they’re eating breakfast, of course. It’s the most important meal of the day!
This is the first time we’re exhibiting at Oz Comic-Con so we’re excited to see what it will be like. I mean, what kind of muffins will be available at the cafeteria? LET’S FIND OUT.
UPDATE! We now have a map of the show floor so you can find us easily! You can click here to get the official full size one, but really the only important bit of it is right here! We’re at Table 24!
Hope to see you there!
After making its exclusive debut at Comic Street 2017 I am very proud to say that Rose #6 is now available in our shop! You can now get your very own copy of this great comic with all of Rose’s latest silly adventures!
In issue six, Rose gets lost in the woods and worries about her future career as a grandmother feeder, gets dragged along on a girl’s night out and…falls in love?! To find out what happens next, and so much more, order your copy right now!
I am so super excited to bring you this comic, it has come together so beautifully and looks absolutely incredible on paper! Maybe one day I can figure out how to make comics smell like cupcakes. Anyway, just look how happy Rose is on the cover, that is how happy you will be reading it!
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:
