1. Where are you currently based?
I'm from Oakland, CA!
2. How would you describe what you do? If you're an artist/collective, where do you get your ideas? If you are a distro/publisher, how do you find your artists?
I'm currently self-publishing my zines and comics. I'm an artist and graphic designer and I try to constantly envelop myself in art and media that I like, so a lot of different things are always inspiring me. Lately, many of my ideas have been coming out of my travels, but I'm also really interested in cartoons, children's media, video games, and books.
3. What is the last comic or zine you read?
I usually read everything I get right after a zine fest, so the last ones I've looked through are: Sea Urchin by Laura Knetzger, Landscapes by Wesley Powell, Scumburbia by Sam Grinberg, and How to Tame a Lion by Laurie Piña. Highly recommend all of them!
4. What do you like about zine/comics festivals?
There's a great sense of community at every zine fest, and they're all about DIY, accessible and affordable art, which is super important.
5. What are you most excited about that you'll have at EUZINE Fest?
I just finished up a minicomic about traveling/staying in Nagasaki, Japan, so that will be debuting at EUZINE. I'm also planning to get new prints of illustrations! I'll be bringing lots of old prints, which I don't usually do because I'm limited by how much I can carry on my person. I'm also going to try to build a wood display shelf for my zines, because I've always wanted one and I'm running out of table space, but those things are surprisingly hard to find. So I'm most excited about that, honestly.
6. Do you have any upcoming projects or other events you'll be partaking in?
I've been working on a dream log comic for a while now, which will be done by December in time for Comic Arts Los Angeles. It's going to be my first time making a perfect bound book, so I'm both really excited and scared, which is exactly how I feel about CALA as well.
