When I was at the peak (or trough?) of my fight with depression I went through a phase of never using my phone. It was so stupid. I thought every call was going to be bad news so I just never answered. I'm pretty proud of what a good impression of a functioning human being I can do these days.

On a lighter note, I got a box of my stuff back from my old work today that my friend has been looking after for me for YONKS. One of the things inside it was Emi Lenox's 'EMITOWN Vol. 1' graphic novel, which I then had to read cover to cover when I got home. So this update of 'One Good Thing' is sorta inspired by her style. I find Emi's work (especially her diary comics) so honest and touching, I aspire to get to her level one day.

Also, yes I KNOW this update is LATE AGAIN but at least I managed one this week eh? EH!?

House Party stuffs :D

The past few days I've mainly been getting the 'House Party' pre-orders ready for sending, and also getting ready for my launch party on Friday and ELCAF on Saturday. 

SO due to busyness this week's One Good Thing is just a scribbly picture of me doing everything I just said...

BUT below the pic I'll put some info on how you can get a copy of the book and/or come party with me and the other Great Beast artists OK!? Jeez...

I don't really have a little wagon. I wish I did.
Also, if I had time to colour this I would have made the wagon red. So just...imagine that, would you? Thanks. You're the best.


You: 'Hey, Rachael! What's the happs? Did you mention a PARTY or summ'n?'

OK guys so it's finally my launch party for 'House Party' this Friday (13th June)!
Oh my gosh, please come! It would mean a whole bunch and I am literally terrified of no one showing up...
It's at Orbital Comics (8, Great Newport Street, London) from 7pm. It's FREE, and there will be a (read: limited) supply of free drinks available. I'll be signing and sketching in books :)
There's a Facebook event for the party here, if you like that sorta thing.

You: 'Hmm, OK. That sounds good but I'm only free on the Saturday. I guess after your launch party you'll be way hungover and in bed all day, huh...'

No you guys I'm totally gonna be at ELCAF all day on the Saturday (14th June)!
I'll be there selling comics with other, amazing Great Beast artists/writers: Robert M Ball, Adam Cadwell, Dan Cox, John Cei Douglas, and Warwick Johnson Cadwell. 
ELCAF is taking place at The Oval, Bethnal Green, London. Tickets are £3 for adults and free for children under 16.
ELCAF's official website is riiiiight here.

You: 'Yeahhh but what if I can't make it to either of those things?? I just want to buy the comic about the house party, yo!'

OMG you can totally pre-order the comic from Great Beast HERE!
They'll be shipping just as soon as I get back home after the weekend :)
When you order you can also choose to have a personalised copy for a little extra cash, if you're into that.

I think that's it. Yay!
I really hope to see lots of you over the weekend! 
Big loves, guys.
