And the last poster I had made to sell at conventions. I believe I only have one left.
The second poster I made to sell at conventions. I don't have anymore left of these.
This is a poster I had made for conventions. (I believe I only have one left)
Expressions Challenge
started as a warmup, and then I decided to finish it. :B

I know that I could be waaay more expressive, but.. Rahkhi is originally meant to be a little less expressive than her counterparts, so maybe I won't. :B
This is featured on the inside of my graphic novel. (I realize I have never shared it online anywhere!)

And now, a word from our sponsors
Heroes&Bandits is an original comic with original characters in an original story... A Wild West Gothic Country [tall] tale in the making!

I wanted to wait a bit before uploading... I thought I had more to add, but looking at it again, I'm OK with it. I may add something later, who knows. But for now, enjoy the intermission!

EDIT: OK I realize the text is too small.. I will fix it later then, :/
"Y'see, what I'd tell ya" "So talented!" "Will you sign here?" *gulp* "Why thank ya kindly" "This is them old models" <--Percussion Lock "I ain' ne'er seen that 'afore" "STICK AROUND! We have plenty more where that came from! Break ends in 5 minutes" "OK we get it" "So loud!"

are some of the things they're saying

Sorry, I meant to upload this yesterday. I uploaded it on DA, but missed it here on SJ @_@

I had been sitting on this page for the past 2 weeks. I'm slow to working on the page after it. I figured I'd share it with ya'll now, rather than let it rot on the HD. Sorry again for the slow updates. Enjoy!

Get out and Vote, Nov 6, 2012
It is the year 2012, and once again, time to VOTE here in the United States of America! Not only for a new president, but for important propositions that are in your state or district!!

Register, and vote today!

Men have fought long and hard to get the right to vote. Women have fought long and hard to get the right to vote. Races of all kinds have fought long and hard to vote.

WE THE PEOPLE are very lucky to have this Constitutional right!!

Voting day is November 6, 2012

<sub>"I am 'Rambling Rose' and I approve this message"</sub>


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Drew this last month. Like a dummy, I could have posted it onto SmackJeeves ahead of time, and just let it update on its own, on a Darn Tootin' Tuesday. But whoops, I missed it by one day :/

Aaanyway. Go out and register. And vote! Your voice matters.

Perhaps a prime example is me: On the news, they reported you need proper identification (depending on what state you vote in). AS A PARANOID PERSON, I freaked out. I have a driver's license, but it has the wrong name (my last name changed a bit when I got married), and I have the wrong address. ON TOP OF IT, my license expired on my birthday this past summer.

LUCKILY, I went to a faire last weekend, and saw that they had a "register to vote" booth. I almost passed it on and was going to do it online.... but I want to vote real bad, and asked the booth manager if I could still re-register, and vote with my messed up driver's license. Apparently you CAN (here in California), as long as I have my social security number to re-register. At the polling booth, they shouldn't be asking for ID, [apparently. That is what I was told here]

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO we'll see what happens when I need to vote. I re-registered, so I'm covered there. :)

Hello everyone! Long time no update! It's been a little over a year, and I am still on hiatus. For those who are not in-the-know, I am currently about 5 1/2 months pregnant (due in July)!! No conventions for me this year, but I will try my best to see if I can update when I can :) Thanks for your patience, and enjoy the show!

PS: Sorry for the delay in update today. I had this done since last week, I just forgot to post it to SmackJeeves ahead of time, with their nifty "post on this date" option. Oops!

Absolutely inspired by Helen Hardin's paintings, I just had to draw something to celebrate the summer!

Here's my original character, Rahkhi, my Navajo Indian drummer from my comic, Heroes&Bandits. I had her dress up as a corn maiden, perhaps for a Navajo Corn Dance...?

And yes, that's blue corn she's got! (To go with the theme, I figured it'd be something like Navajo Blue Corn)~

~~~

And like a doofus, originally I was looking for a summer theme, but I suppose corn is more of a fall harvest *x* But I'm sure if you did it right, you can have corn ALL YEAR ROUND

My good friend who goes by HoganLP online, is in charge of a calendar to help fund some folks who are running in the Relay for Life.

OK, I'm really going to try to restrain from kicking myself thousands of times here. But just so y'all know:

Yes, I realize that I already have this printed and forgot to...
o ... add the chapter number (technically chapter 1)
o ... add, along with the ch #, "part 1 of 3"
o ... title this story arc (but hey, I put "featuring Ringo Gringo's Wild West Show"??)

And yeah, sorry for using 80% already-seen material @_@;

Though, the book came out lovely, and I sold a lot at the Gaslight Gathering a few weeks ago. Completely sold out of the prologue, or "issue 0", and will have to do a re-print of that book. But, like many publishing companies, I'm going to re-print issue 0 with SNAZZY NEW NEVER-BEFORE SEEN IMAGES AND EASTER EGGS ABOUND! But it will take some planning, and if I'm lucky with funds, can come up with a new one by AX.

Speaking of AX, I *SHOULD* have chapter 2 ripped and ready to rock by then, too!

Part 3 of 3 in this saga will most likely not be seen until late August (both online and in person). Just waaaay too much on my plate up until Mid July @_@;

And thanks again folks, for being patient. Enjoy this cover! I can't wait to make the second cover, and of course, the THIRD one, which has been sitting in the back of my head since the beginning of this whole saga! It's gonna rock I swear XDDD

Gaslight Gathering 2011
8D I had a BLAST. I think this was one of the best conventions I've EVER gone to!

I'm apologizing ahead of time, as well.... I met sooo many awesome folk, and I didn't have the heart to mention that I'm real busy with freelance/Real Life right now (still working on three separate gigs, and preparing for two shows in June)~!!

ALSO: Rocky-o.com is unavailable right now! It WILL be up and running in the next few days! Sorry for the confusion!


PS:
thanks to mosama and mossi-mo, and everyone else who have been super understanding that real life stuff just gets in the way of your dreams, sometimes! ; _ ; It's great to hear that I have support, and that y'all don't want to stone me! haha

Not to fret! I have the rest of this chapter planned out, as well as a short 5 page bonus story I plan on adding to the re-print of Issue #0 (I completely SOLD OUT at Gaslight Gathering!) Details sooooooooon :)
