    Well, it's taken over six months of waiting but it's finally printed! Some of you may remember me posting roughs of this project on the artist thread and it's nice to finally see it in final form.

    Written and self-published by Robert Anderson and me doing the art.
    here's the official description:
    Paperback
    A kid's book for kids of all ages ;)
    Meet Mimi! She knows a lot about teamwork, determination, friends, and having fun! She wants to share with you some of the things she has learned through her friends and the sport of roller derby!
    Chock full of awesome full page illustrations!
    Size: A4 (11.7 x 8.3 inches)

    order online here or if you live in Brisbane, it should be in book shops eventually..WIP

    This looks really good, and I know my daughter would love it. Shipping to the US of A is too expensive though :(

    Niiice. I've spread the word among the local derby folks, too.

    @agentarsenic...just wondering, how much is the OS postage?
    Thanks for the response. I'm not getting any more cash from this end of the project but wanted to help promote it.
    Strange as it sounds, the art stuff's not my day job and I've only had a few occurences where people actually bought something I drew. It's a weird and rare event for me.

    The book is also now available on Amazon

    I just sent the link to a friend who is pretty heavily in to the Toronto Roller Derby scene (she herself is a "zebra". Her words:

    "This is awesomely awesome in all the awesome states of awesomeness that can ever be awesomed into the world of awesome."

    Really? Damn, I always love your stuff! You make me miss Brisbane summers and tuning into 4ZZZ. Will promote to the derby girls here in Tas.

    I showed some people in my boxing club the label you did for Audacious Bitch. They absolutely love it.



    Yeah, I think you'll go far with this "art" thing. :)

    Tha for the kind words, folks.
    @smiley...speaking of 4zzz, I'm a volunteer and so is the writer and he happened to see my stuff at the station by chance.
    @oldhat..how'd the brew turn out anyway? I'm not really a beer drinker but am curious.

    Here's a link of a radio interview I did with the writer for the book. Ugh, I sound so dorky on radio...
