I’m talking a lot lately to Shane, one of the main people (if not THE person) behind the supercool ComX.

Great fellah, providing all sorts of support for indie comic artists, including a new place to sell Deathship Jenny!

I now have a profile here: https://comx.net.au/talent/rob-oconnor/

And you can now buy DSJ and a whole buncha other cool Aussie comics from here: https://comx.shop/product-category/independent/deathship-jenny

Here’s a report on TooCon by WIN News Toowoomba.

I get a cameo and say words and stuff! Somehow, full sentences were strung together.

Gold Coast Supanova – The Square Peg Stall

Category : Comics, Ramblings(1) Comment 路 by Apr 6th, 2014

So the Gold Coast Supanova has been and gone for another year. This time , however, I participated in the Square Peg stall with Dave聽writer Stewart Cook and Robert Hall, who contributed with Stewart on another title聽Nexus Point. We also shared the space with OzComics and聽Killeroo creator Darren Close and artist聽Emmanuel Hernaez.

I had a fine weekend meeting these gentlemen. I had nothing to sell per s膿, but I got to sit, watch the cosplayers go by, meet a fair few industry types and draw for a weekend! Quite fine for the first time around.


Setting up.

L to R: Stewart, Robert, Emmanuel, Darren


First time I saw the poster. Never seen my stuff so large!

The view from my unit. Nice!


A final promo shot for Stewart to use at future conventions!

Today’s been the launch party of the blog. Some mighty fine people have been saying some mighty fine things. Thanks everyone!

Have a good look through. I hope you like what you see.

I want to use it to put all my projects old and new. I’ll try to update it as regularly as I can. As they say: watch this space! 馃檪

I’ve branched into merchandising now, apparently…

Rob’s idea of enterprise is the ship that Captain Kirk flies in.

Someone very business-minded once described me in this way.聽I was angry at first but… well… he’s right. I’m not in this world to make a buck.

Having said that, a few people have asked for my art on posters and t-shirts and such. I’m extremely chuffed by that. Thank you!

Because of that, I’ve done this:

society6-logoSociety6聽is a nifty place that turns your art into merch. I get a wee bit of money back though, naturally, not enough to quit my day job (I could buy an ice cream from the local shop though). 馃槈

Click on聽Buy Prints at the top of the page and you can get some of my stuff for yourself. Hurrah!

If there’s something you see on my site that you’d like added, let me know and I’ll see what I can do. Not everything will translate because of file size issues and such, but I’ll do my best.

That’s it really. Back to the usual fun!
