Rocket Rabbit Collection

For the EMERALD CITY convention in Seattle this week, I have a “new” book to sell; a 56 page collection of all the Rocket Rabbit stories that I’ve published so far. KENESS has really come through with yet another fantastic print job. At 8.25×10.5 inches, this format is much bigger than any of the earlier Rocket Rabbit books and the [..read more..]

Year of the RABBIT

Gung Hay Fat Choy, everybody! In the chinese zodiac, 2011 is the year of the Rabbit. Coincidentally, it is also the 10th year of my self-publishing efforts, which started with Rocket Rabbit back at Comic Con in 2001. If I can find enough spare time, I intend to publish an anniversary ROCKET RABBIT edition (collecting old stories plus new material) [..read more..]

Ape 2010: Table #108

I just bought some portable lightweight stands to hang my CONVENTION BANNERS from. It was a bit of an intelligence test trying to figure out how they work but I prevailed and will use them for the first time at the Alternative Press Expo (APE) this weekend. Mostly these book-shows and conventions provide a backboard behind the exhibitor spaces to [..read more..]

Book Plans

Lately, I’ve been planning my self-published books for next year. 2011 will mark the 10th year of my self-publishing efforts, which began at Comic Con 2001, when I exhibited for the very first time (sharing a table with Bosco Ng and Derek Thompson). Although there has been a steady flow of comics and minis in the interim, my output of [..read more..]

Thrust Monkey

When I am doodling away on my self-published comics, I can really disappear up my own creative tail-pipe on the preparations sometimes. I may spend days and days designing a character who only appears in one or two panels, drawing pages and pages of thumbnail sketches, and spending hours and hours thinking up names and back-stories and all that stuff….

The Professor

This is a sketch of Rocket Rabbit’s partner, THE PROFESSOR, that I drew at LAST year’s Comic Con while minding the Abismo/Nerve Bomb booth. For those of you who don’t like the feet to be cut off on sketches, I say that she is probably wading through some knee-deep water… yeah, that’s it. My preparations for this year’s Comic Con [..read more..]

Busy Busy Busy

Work has been busy lately, very busy indeed. Which is a good problem to have in many ways, but I haven’t had much spare time for making comics this year. Even though I thumbnailed out several comics stories at the end of 2005, the combination of animation work and a side project with my Dad has meant that I haven’t [..read more..]

Pin-up of POWER!

Bold Brian Kalin-O’Connell has recently wrought a powerful picture of Rocket Rabbit dodging disaster; a snarling, super-sized simian! I’ve already had the pleasure of seeing a few people do pin-ups of NAUTI GIRL (which you can see in my COMICS section under the “Pinup gallery” link) but not too many people (apart from my nephews) have had a crack at [..read more..]

Registered TM

Yes! Rocket Rabbit is now a REGISTERED Trademark. Which means that he can not only throw a ™ around, but an ® as well. Which looks flashier on “cease and desist” letters. I had long ago thought it may be a good idea to protect the name of my favourite character, because it is exactly the kind of aliterative moniker [..read more..]

Allout Media Assault

Thanks to a tip from Janine Dawson, I found out that Rocket Rabbit was featured in the RADAR TRAP puzzle page section of the Sydney Morning Herald a few weeks ago. My brother Dominic provided me with this scan. The topic for the puzzle was “Obscure Super heroes” and some of the other mighty characters featured in the actual puzzle [..read more..]
