Where are you currently based?
Portland, OR. But mostly my studio.
How would you describe what you do?
Ostensibly I make comics and illustrations. But I am also currently working on building a network of writers and artists to help hook creators up with others for collaboration. Furthermore, I am taking on editor duties for a new online anthology. I find the latter to be the most rewarding
I meet creators in person at local art meet ups, at zine shows and the Tumblr site zinescene.
I encourage people to contact me if they are looking for artists/writers for an upcoming project, or need an encouraging and motivated individual to bounce ideas off of. I love paying it forward and kicking people work, or helping any way I can. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the last comic or zine you read?
Technophilia by Elisa Mask and Zac Finger is a great zine. It comes with a mixtape for the total analog experience - it took me to another world.
SCAM by Erick Lyle is a must read for a new generation of protest. The back issues are like a crusty punk diary. Great.
The Fist by Jordan Kroeger is a cool, irreverent sci fi action story. He has print volumes for sale, just email and ask. Very reasonably priced.
My boi stc019 makes great trans friendly comics. Great art, and a diverse set of work.
What do you like about zine/comics festivals?
Meeting people who are either looking for collaborators or looking to collaborate on a project.
What are you most excited about that you'll have at EUZINE Fest?
My notebook that I can use to write down the contact info of people I meet. Also I'll be bringing Kitchen of Chaos, which is an action/comedy comic I am very proud of.
Do you have any upcoming projects or other events you'll be partaking in?
My current project is Make Out: Virtuazine. It's a fantasy/scifi comic anthology that is focused on creating a new, fun and easy user experience for reading comics on desktop or smart phone. I launched the first issue last month and it includes the comic works of 7 creators from around the world. Next issue will be in December. People can check it out at www.gridtown.co/makeout
