Updated every Tuesday & Thursday!

Fran has the BEST conversations with herself in bathrooms.

Soooo, since the gift-giving season is almost upon us. I'm going to open up slots for watercolor couple portrait commissions from now until December 10th (in theory to give me enough time to have them done/shippable before the holidays). The portraits are of whatever couple combo you want -  human + human, animal + human, animal + animal! But just two creatures per portrait. 

Here's an example of what they'll look like - featuring me and my monster ginger kitty!

They'll all be original watercolors, 8" x 8" square, $65. I'm going to limit them to 30 slots for now, and I'll open more if I'm feeling confident I can get more done!

To get on the list, send me an email ( with pictures/names of the couple you choose!

There’s something both earthy and retro about Monica Gallagher’s style — which is perfectly in keeping with the nature of her brazenly femme heroine, Bonnie N. Collide.

It's back to Fran's safe place!

Hey everyone, Inktober is still going strong! I'm a few days behind, but I don't care if that just drags out the fun even longer :P Make sure to follow along with me on my Instagram or my Patreon to see what I've done so far, and the #inktober tag to see what all the amazing artists of the world out there are doing!

I like The Rose Bucket because it sounds like the perfect dive bar - part strong smell, part collection of god knows what inside!

I'm back from NYCC! I have the delightful Con Crud or Con Plague or whatever the cool kids are calling it now ... Con Seasonal Allergies? That one sounds pretty lame. But I had a GREAT time and was so excited to meet familiar faces and greet new faces with my own face! I might be Con Delusional, so please excuse all the ramblings I'm putting here. Sorry for the lateness on this strip, but there'll be another Bonnie this week, just when you least expect it!

Hey everyone!! I'm back from NYCC but stilllll pretty zonked, so Bonnie will be up a wee bit later. In the meantime, if you want to check out some of the commissions I did, I put up most of them on the Instagrams. BIG THANKS to everyone who came by and visited me last week! It was a craaaazy fun hectic weekend, and I'm so glad I got to be there for it! More soon ... zzzzz ....

This time of year, Bonnie has her eyes locked on ONLY ONE TARGET. FALL PICNIC!

I'm having a brief break inbetween cons, but SO SOON I will be at NEW YORK COMIC CON from October 6th - 9th! I'll be in Artist Alley, table P12, next to my dear friend Tim Fish. If you want to get on the commissions list ahead of time, just shoot me an email!

Cheryl's patience is wearing off in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ...

For those of you who may not be aware, it's Bisexuality Awareness week! A time to celebrate all the magical people out there who, like Bonnie, don't necessarily stick to one gender preference or another. Many self-identified bisexuals feel invisible much of the time, so it's nice to take a moment to recognize and appreciate them. Hooray! Here's a flashback to back when Bonnie first came out to Stuart, and in the strip!

Hey y'allllll I'm back from SPX! It was a super fun time, and I got to see all my favorite comics creators and attendee faces and greet some new ones! I'll be posting my new book and my newest prints online in my store soon, and will throw up (uh, will post) a link here when they're available! Thanks to everyone who came out to say hello! And NEW YORK COMIC CON I'M COMING FOR YOU NEXT MONTH!

Bonnie's body is made up of 20% fun and 80% competitive spirit.

I'll be at SPX this weekend at Table W-29 (that's against the back wall, WALL PARTY), where I'll have a few new prints from Baltimore Comic Con AND will be debuting my latest mini comic:

After the show I'll have it up for sale in my shops, or $3 Patrons get the PDF and $10 Patrons get the book mailed to them along with some other goodies this month!

Slam is permanently set to Flirt Mode, all the time.

I know I just got through one convention, but another one is right around the corner! SPX, my first beloved convention (that I've been going to since - ACK - 2002??) is happening Sept. 17 - 18th! I'll have a new mini comic debuting (pics once I get them back from the printer) and new prints and things for sale. If you want a commission done pre-show, give me a holler!

THANKS AGAIN everyone who came out to Baltimore Comic Con this weekend! It was like one big reunion party of friendly faces from my past and present! You all kept me busy with commission sketches (which I looooove) of your favorite people/characters, which you can check out on my Instagram page (I'll be posting process stuff on them for $3 Patreon peeps this week!). And guess what - in two weeks is SPX, my 2nd local fun con, where I'll be debuting a new mini comic! And of course, still doing sketches - so feel free to give me a shout-out ahead of time if you'd like to put in your order before the show!

Everyone makes Dating Pacts of one kind or another, right? 

So this week kicks off LOCAL CON MONTH for me - this Friday thru Sunday is Baltimore Comic Con, and in a few weeks is the beloved SPX! I'll have books and prints, will have a new mini comic for SPX (more on that later) AND will be doing sketches before and during the show, if you're interested in getting on the list!

Here's an awesome map my friend Kata Kane created to show you where I'll be sitting at Baltimore (A218) as well as my other local comics friends of our group Bmore Into Comics:
