1. Where are you currently based?
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?
These days my comics are almost entirely autobiographical while my paintings tend to be escapist portraits full of bright colors, imaginary humanoids, and anatomically impossible poses. Most of my ideas come while taking walks, which seem to be the only time I allow my mind to truly wander.
3. What is the last comic or zine you read?
The last zine I read was a fantastic/mouth-watering zine called Dinner Rollz by Chef Rachel. I acquired it through a trade at Olympia Zine Fest.
4. What d you like about zine/comics festivals?
What I love most about zine/comics festivals is that it feels like I'm with my people. Nothing against Indiana, but while I was living there it was hard to find an artistic community that equally appreciated the stuff I was immersed in. So it's incredibly life-giving now that I'm here in the PNW to find all these pockets of wonderfully strange creatives.
5. What are you most excited about that you'll have at EUZINE Fest?
I'll be selling a new mini-zine about my experience in a sensory deprivation chamber and I'll also be selling my full length graphic memoir for super cheap now that I've covered production costs--woot!
6. Do you have any upcoming projects or other events you'll be partaking in?
I'm currently working on a full-color book of humorous life happenings called Mildly Undignified. Now how I plan on printing a full-length color book is another question for another day. I'll be tabling at two events on November 11th: On the Precipice: A PZS Prelude and Comix Thing. If you're in Portland you should come hang out!
7. Please draw a personification of your Muse or Familiar.
This possum in cowboy boots is my muse. He is whispering melodramatic nothings in my ear at every moment.
