ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES! ZINES!

A zine is a self-published project, usually smallish and cheap to distribute. I’ve made several of them and use them as a way to connect with others. In a time where it’s rare to actually own anything, it’s comforting to know my silly drawings can exist in a physical space, even if that physical space is being lost between bigger books or stuck in your couch cushions!

I also use zines as an excuse to travel! I have tabled at…

  • New Orleans Comics and Zines Festival ’17 and ’19
  • Denver Zine Fest ’18
  • San Diego Zine Fest ’18
  • Alaska Robotics Minicon ’19

And you will be seeing me at…

  • Portland Zine Symposium (tabling saturday only!), July 20th, 2019
  • Gender Unbound Arts Festival in Austin, TX, September 21-22
