Hi folkses! Bonnie will resume shortly BUT HERE'S SOME NEW NEWS RIGHT NOW: my new webcomic ASSASSIN ROOMMATE will be debuting on Webtoons Tuesday, June 6th and running weekly for the next 6 months, WAHOOOO! Come join me, won't you? 

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.

Updated every Tuesday & Thursday!

I too would be pissed if someone hinted at a Game Night and didn't deliver!

BIG SHOUT OUT to everyone from C2E2 this weekend! I had such a blast and will definitely return next year! Chicago + family + comics pals + fun commissions + lovely new faces = one magical convention. Now it's time for me to hide until TCAF and VanCAF - the Canadian DOUBLE THREAT I'll be attending in May!

Fran's all thinking about that GAY CITY again!

SOME NEWS! I have a new webcomic with LINE Webtoon starting up in a few months (deets to come!) that Entertainment Weekly gave a shout-out to, very exciting! It's called Assassin Roommate and it'll be in color and updated weekly and amazing, I hope you'll all read it!

Also, I just posted a new autobio comic on my Patreon page for $1+ peeps!

Sneak attack!

GAH sorry for all the kerfuffle this week with the comic - apparently the landscapers at my apartment complex took out the internet line while I was off gallivanting at ECCC, and it only just got fixed yesterday. When in doubt, you can always follow my Insta's and Twitter's and FB's and if something like that happens again, I'll always post there in lieu! 

I'm still recovering from said ECCC but it was a TOTAL BLAST ahhhh I had so much fun! Met so many new people, caught up with old favorites, and managed to stay awake for each day of the con AND post-con parties after. Now I'm back and emerged in my first week of full-time freelance work! I'm already scheming to see what more I can do for you guys (more Bonnie's each week?? Resurrect some color strips?) It's terrifying and a new adventure and I'm super thrilled. I'll be sharing more with you guys here and on my Patreon about it, and as always feel free to share your thoughts with me here or there!

Fran vs. Slam on gender ease-a-date-ability!

Well IT'S TIME, Emerald City Comic Con is THIS Thursday through Sunday! I am still taking commission requests beforehand, though I won't be working on them till the show. So if you'd like one, send me an email (lipstickisspress@gmail.com) and let me know what you want, pencil or ink, and it'll be at the top of my pile while I'm at the show! (You can find commission prices/examples here!) OR you can let me know at the show and I'll let you know my availability! This year I'm a Guest (wee!) sitting alongside an all-star line-up in Artist Alley at Table I-1

Here are some of the new things I'll have with me - a brand new romance mini-comic called Martial Outlet (available only as a PDF at the moment, but will be in print and on Comixology soon!) and Stucky and Buffy prints.

Once again, this year I'm lucky to be going to THOUGHT BUBBLE! Shout-out to all my UK readers who will be there, you can find me at Table 80 in the Royal Armouries Hall! I'll have some Bonnie books with me so you can avoid those insane shipping fees and buy it directly from me and my jet-lagged face! Hope to see all of you there this weekend!

(Also, I'll be in Dublin for a bit after the show if anyone has any pubs they want to recommend! I'm a gluten-free weirdo who loves cider and wine. ;) )

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 (lipstickisspress@gmail.com) with pictures/names of the couple you choose!

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!

Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five #497

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 ....

Just keep talking 'till the problem goes away, that's what I always say! ;) HEY LOCAL PEEPS it's that time again - we're holding another BMORE INTO COMICS this Saturday at The Windup Space! For those of you who don't know, it's a super casual gathering of local comics creators who show/sell their stuff and chat about their creative process ... in a bar!
