Pat Brady launched himself into the world of cartooning at the ripe old age of six. By 11 the confident young artist began submitting his strips to newspapers. Pat went on to study art and creative writing at the University of Wisconsin then made his leap into full-time Rose is Rose work in 1984. After two decades of creating every Rose is Rose comic strip himself, Pat now shares the writing and drawing duties with Don Wimmer. This is the first Rose is Rose collection that features the Brady-Wimmer collaboration.
Red Carpet Rose: A Rose Is Roseby Pat Brady, Don Wimmer
Rose is Rose has long garnered attention from fans across/i>/i>
Creator Pat Brady received the 2004 Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year from the National Cartoonists Society. He's previously been honored as a nominee for the award seven times, and Rose is Rose has been nominated five times for the Society's Best Newspaper Comic Strip Award.
Rose is Rose has long garnered attention from fans across the country and around the world. When the National Cartoonists Society named Rose creator Pat Brady Outstanding Cartoonist of 2004 it only confirmed what those readers already knew in their hearts: Brady rolls out one of the best strips in the business.
Red Carpet Rose is Brady's first book since he received the NCS honors. As the seven previous Rose is Rose books have done before, this one continues the tales of the hilarious Gumbo family: Rose, her husband, Jimbo, and their devilish, delightful, and demanding son, Pasquale. Brady deftly captures the innocent and ageless qualities of wonder and awe at the world's boundless experiences, as seen through the lives of his beloved characters.
Whether the Gumbos are sharing a simple family moment in the park, Pasquale is pushing his little-boy limits, or Rose is morphing into her Biker Chic alter ego, this Rose is Rose compilation of daily and Sunday strips delivers all the fun, laughter, and family-loving moments that mark Brady's work. This is cartooning at its best!
