Portland for the Weekend!
Have I mentioned that I’ll be exhibiting at the Stumptown Comics Fest this weekend? My two li’l printers are hard at work right now churning out copies of my latest autobio mini-comic GO FOR THE EYES! Latest Mini-Comic! It’s debuting at Stumptown but I’ll have it for sale from my shop when I get back. 24 pages of pure awkward, undiluted self-defense! Can you dig it?? ...

I’ve got a new Mother’s Day card up in my Etsy Shop! For all those killer moms out there.
Good Morning, Bonnie!
I posted a new comic update last night that was rife with problems so I didn’t say anything … here it is now!
Comics vs. Crafts
Yesterday I exhibited at my first craft show, and it was interesting to compare the experience to comic shows (which are normally more my bag). Since I’ve applied to craft shows before but never been accepted, I was nervous. I wasn’t sure the crafters would accept me into their clan. Luckily, the experience was wonderful! Crafters seem to be just as supportive and excited about each...
Kick-Ass Women - Part 2
I know this was supposed to be a WEEK of Kick-Ass Women, but I’ve been a little busy this week prepping for Spring Bada Bing, so I think I’m going to turn this into an ongoing series on them instead. Because, let’s face it - I will never get tired of talking about them. The next Kick-Ass Woman is actually THREE women who all impacted my view of what at a kick-ass woman could be....
This weekend I’m super excited to say I’ll be exhibiting at my very first craft show! *wooooooo* Spring Bada Bing in Richmond, Virginia this Sunday, April 15th from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. On the unholiest of Tax Days, why not come out and support some creative crafters and get some yummy food? I’m prepping for it right now … I’ll have Greek God Cuffs, Hanging...
Bonnie N. Collide Update!
Bonnie N. Collide update! And, um … soooo … remember how I told you guys I added comments to my comic? Now I’ve run into the problem where I normally post the latest comic as “last.htm”. So when I go to add a new comic update, I save “last.htm” as the next number of the comic, and save a new update as “last.htm”. Make any sense? So the...
Kick-Ass Women Week - Day 1
I consider myself to be someone heavily influenced by story. When I read something, I want to believe it. When I watch something, I feel like I still linger in that world a little bit, long after the credits role. And with characters onscreen, there’s always a piece or two of them that I want to absorb. Since I announced that this is Kick-Ass Women Week, I’m going to celebrate just a...
Strong Women and Stuff
I’ve mentioned before that I’m working on a comic about my experiences dealing with self-defense. When I was writing it, I found it really difficult to separate out all of my feelings on the subject. I was trying to stuff the entire scope of my feelings into one 24-page book, which didn’t really work. Consequently, one of the aspects I felt like I had to trim down significantly...
I know it’s bad form to think your own work is cute, but I just want to pinch the cheeks of this li’l prairie dog! Oh yeah, and here’s a giraffe, too. True to my knobbly, elbowy, clumsy heart. Both are now up in my Etsy Shop. :)
Bonnie N. Collide Update! And comments!
New Bonnie post! And to celebrate, I’ve decided to add a comments box! Yes, I’m finally now doing what others have been doing with their comics for YEARS. At first I tried HTML Comment Box, but on a recommendation, I’m giving Disqus a whirl. Check it out and let me know what you think! … And be kind. Clearly these things take me a while to add/perfect. :)
Sometimes it’s difficult creating work outside of school and having to invent your own deadlines. It can be hard to get inspired or get ideas for new projects. I’ve found a way around this stumbling block, and that’s to find a person who’s style/work I admire and decide to silently compete with them. It doesn’t matter that they have no idea that you’re...
