      This Pride – Rooster Tails 

      The three people depicted in the second panel are Stormé DeLarverie, Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. There are many more that could be named. There are some really interesting articles online about the history of that night, and subsequent prides – I encourage you to have a look at them. Also, there were other uprisings before, and after, stonewall from LGBTQI+ people against police brutality – like the Compton’s Cafeteria riot in San Francisco in 1966.

      Given the riots happening in the USA right now, it feels important to acknowledge that this pride is different. I also want to acknowledge the massive work that’s been done in New Zealand to call out and stop racism within the New Zealand police system.

      I found this article really helpful thinking about my role as a white person.

      Here’s a great comic by Toby Morris about the situation in New Zealand. And here are some NZ based organisations working to change  this:

      And here’s some links to the US riots:

        Book Lessons – Rooster Tails 

        It’s been such an amazing learning experience tackling a large narrative. It’s, thankfully, already all written, although we’re updating and changing parts so it works better as a graphic novel. But it’s a huge task thinking about the narrative structure, making sure all the characters and plot points feed the main themes together, and you know, making it an enjoyable reading experience. Sometimes I really feel like the Charlie/Pepe Silvia meme guy.

        For the last few months I’ve been working on three pages at a time, and it’s a real breakthrough in terms of my process. I’ve found it really helps with pacing and flow and generally helps me hold a bigger chunk of the story in my head a bit more easily.

        I’ve learned so so much doing this process and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.

            Giving Myself a break 

            Ooppph this past year has been a time. And by ‘time’ I mean ‘mess’.

            Also, a project I’ve been working on for a little bit has just been launched (proving that I can meet some deadlines!!): Queer Comic Conversations for the Goethe Institute with fellow artist Anna Heger. We’ll be putting up an instalment each month until December, on a different topic relating to queer communities – and I’m  very excited to share it with you all.
