About

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

As a Watson Fellow, I spent August 2019 to March 2020 studying comics in Indonesia, Australia, Japan, and Germany.

My undergraduate 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, and Doukhobor Comics, a history of a Russian-Canadian pacifist sect.

I hawk my minicomics at local zine fairs, Seattle and Portland comic shops, and online.
