"If my child plays chess, they are seen as intelligent but if my child plays poker, suddenly I'm a bad parent."

Zoe Kirk-Robinson is an award-winning British writer, artist, blogger, vlogger and podcaster. She is the creator of The Life of Nob T. Mouse, Ink Proof Cannon, The Webcomic Builder, and Building Tales as well as co-creator of All Over The House and one fifth of The Webcomics Company. She works primarily in Webcomics, where she mixes humour with science-fiction, horror and surrealism, and on YouTube, where she mostly discusses law.


Her prominent works are:

Her website is at, which is also her main pen name, and her Twitter feed is @zoekirkrobinson.

Zoë displays examples of:

  • Attention Deficit Creator Disorder: She co-writes two webcomics; writes all five stories on an anthology webcomic; co-hosts three podcasts; has three YouTube channels; posts on a collaborative YouTube channel; runs four blogs; and studies for a law degree. Oh, and she has a full time job, too.
  • Berserk Button: Watch any video where she discusses homophobia, transphobia or misuses of religion. Time how long it takes for her to start ranting. You'll likely not make it past the two minute mark.

  • Catchphrase: At least two, from her YouTube videos:
    "Hello, Mousers!"
    "I'm Zoë Kirk-Robinson, you've been watching a video, and I'll see you [tomorrow/next time]."
  • Cunning Linguist: As her use of foreign languages in her work can attest, she understands a variety of languages, including: English, French, German, Latin, Japanese, Norwegian and Welsh. However, due to the fact that she is tone deaf (and is now apparently losing her hearing entirely), her pronunciation of anything except English is appalling.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She is one.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: After speech therapy changed her accent and she started trying to get her old one back, she's a real-life example. Watch a few videos and you'll hear her go from English to some weird Scottish/Irish mixture, then back again.
