Please note the change of name; formerly arkadyrose, I'm now RoseGerard, as I have changed my name legally from Arkady Rose to Rose Arkady Gerard, taking my husband's surname (only 2.5 years after we married, but whatever!).
Rather busy of late but not with art :-(
Life has become exceedingly complicated as of late. I'm basically getting no time to just doodle and sketch for my own amusement; it seems that any spare time for art has to be dedicated to (hopefully) paying work - generally t-shirt designs for Redbubble and Spreadshirt. I'm squeezing in writing time whenever I can. This is all because I've had to withdraw my youngest daughter from her school; she'll be 10 in a couple of weeks, has high-functioning autism - and has been the victim of bullying by the head teacher of her school who repeatedly goads my daughter into full-blown meltdowns or putting her into places/situations which will result i

I'll be at 9 Worlds!
I'm going to be at 9 Worlds (London, 12-14 August 2016) this year; I'll be on two panels - "Why Fan Art Matters" at 10am on Friday, and "Writing Queer Characters" (day/time TBC) as well as giving a 5-minute presentation on Fenris/Anders as a ship as part of "9 at Nine Worlds" from 6:45pm on the Friday. I'll also be helping out with "Weird Science", a crafting workshop for kids on the Sunday.
Like what I've written or painted? Leave a tip!
I write fanfic. I write a lot of fanfic. I think it’s probably safe to say I’m pretty prolific. And I write it all for free; no-one pays me to write. I do it for the love of writing, love of the source material - and because my readers seem to like what I write and ask me to write more of it. Likewise, I paint fanart because I love painting, and I love the fandoms that inspire my fanfic - and sometimes I put the two together. Again, I don’t make anything from the fanart - it’s something I just enjoy doing. If you’ve enjoyed what I’ve written or painted, and would like to show your appreciation - maybe consi
