She self-published two issues of the comic strip GFORCE in 1997 and 1999. In 1999 she contributed cartoons to Froth (Melbourne) and her The Neighbours of the Beast appeared in One (site no longer operational). Brown received funding from ArtsACT to produce the comic book Capital Punishment featuring the work of 15 Canberra artists, published at the end of 2000, possibly under an alternative title – Northbourne and Fancy Free . When responding to Joan Kerr’s survey on the question of why she draws cartoons, Brown stated: “I like that I have a collection of stories that form a kind of diary. I also love the medium. You can make serious comments in a very 'people friendly’ format. I get a lot of satisfaction in the progress of my technique. I like to watch a ridiculous amount of videos & if I draw during them, I feel as if time is valid. I just love everything about comics as an art form.” Participated in Silent Army , Express Media, Fitzroy Vic, 2002 (“20 of Australias young comic book veterans together for the first time”: Bicycle, Blanden, Brown , Carvan, Conn, Cure, Danko, Dodds, Fikaris, Greenberg, Mackay, Mangan, Mrongovius, O’Donnell, Ord, Pox, Savieri, Schell, Smith, Taylor ).
