About

Hello! I’m Rose, a (mostly) nonfiction cartoonist.

I grew up in Seattle and went to college in Portland. I’m a Watson Fellow, and will be spending August 2019 to August 2020 studying comics in Indonesia, Germany, Japan, and Australia.

My latest comic (and senior thesis) is Up the Columbia!, a 50-page graphic history of the Columbia River dams. My other work includes Yarn Doll Comics, an autobio series; Lesley and the Wesleys, a Queer geeky family drama, and Doukhobor Comics, a history of a Russo-Canadian pacifist sect.

My comics are available at several stores in Seattle and Portland, and online.

I can be found on Instagram and Facebook, or email me at rosedriver1@gmail.com
