Q: What is your favourite word?
Upholstery, because it makes my nose stretch out all funny when I say it. (That also makes it my least favourite word.)
Q: What do you do as a hobby?
Make comics with my friends!
Q: What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I'd like to work as a botanical illustrator on an exploration voyage of a masted sailing ship. I interviewed to get work as a rigger on the Cutty Sark, but they hired me as ship's illustrator instead.
Q: Which of your own characters do you most identify with?
Vern and Lettuce, from my comic about a rabbit and a sheep who live in a tower block in Pickle Rye. Vern is very much like my husband and I think I'm a little bit like Lettuce. I love going on adventures with them and finding out what happens.
Q: What do you do to combat “writers’ block”?
Make a drawing or a comic that's totally unrelated to my work. You can see a lot of them on my blog: jabberworks.livejournal.com
