I Grew Up Beautiful now online!

In the rush of last year I had completely forgotten to put I Grew Up Beautiful online for people to read – it’s had amazing reactions and I’m still so proud of it, so I’ve not only loaded it onto Tumblr (go share it if you like it? :D) but also onto the page here onto the website!

If you like it, please consider picking up a hardcopy of the minicomic in my store! It’s a really well printed, beautiful little mini and there aren’t many copies left now! Don’t miss out!


Brisnova 2014!

Haaa Supanova Brisbane 2014 was amazing!

I met so many wonderful people and had some REALLY good conversations – I next to other comics people but this gave me a really good chance to look at how table traffic went for others around me. I try to make every event a learning experience but it was really more fun than normal!

I also got to thinking about the posts I see online (especially on facebook) about how independent creators never make money at conventions – no one ever seems to post what kind of money they’re thinking, but the last few years I’ve at least broken even on my costs so I did a few little posts for anyone thinking of doing a convention. I don’t make any impressive kind of amount, but it’s improving every year and I’m confident this will continue as long as I keep working hard!

Thank you to everyone who said hello or stopped by, and even bigger thank you to everyone who bought something! You really inspire me to do better comics, and more of them too!

OH MY! Comics launch!


Welcome to the Oh My! Comics site – I’m so excited to launch this site, and this imprint. I’ve been planning for some time to branch out from a very simple self publishing method into something bigger and more sustainable, AND I have a Super Secret and amazing announcement to make shortly!

While Oh My! will still primarily be an imprint for my own work, I’ll be branching out and working with an amazing artist on a new project that is going to be SO GREAT, so keep your eyes peeled!
