Almost half of my office wall is her posters. I love her work so much.

I really need a spooky front yard whale fall.

I have one of her drawings as a tattoo (with her permission- it’s part of a panel from the long form Bird and Moon story) and I luff it.

Also, ‘beware, I have activated the fluffy ears’ and ‘it is a dewlap, does it not terrify?’ From threat displays are frequently uttered in my house.

This is my absolute favourite of her comics.

Rosemary is one of the few communicators who make me feel like I can actually productively contribute to mitigating climate collapse. When I feel hopeless and overwhelmed, I look up her comics.

She is also friendly and kind and the interactions I've had with her around our webcomics have always been lovely.

She's wonderful! My coworkers are birders and love her mnemonic bird sound posters:
Eastern North American Bird Sounds
Western North American Bird Sounds

This is my go-to baby shower gift for my friends. Everyone who has received one was absolutely thrilled with it. I love Rosemary Mosco!!

I have loved her comics for a long time but had not connected the climate change comics with the bird comics, and now I love her even more.
