Getting To Know Your Local Zinester: Eyedraugh

Nathaniel Osollo

Eyedraugh

What was your first zine about and when was it made? 
The first zine I ever made was a random assortment of drawings, photos, and writings I jumbled together in a rush. I wanted a small published freebie to hand out at an art show I was asked to exhibit at. That was back in 2007 when I was awkward. I’m still awkward…
Describe your most recent zine. 
My most recent zine is a mini-comic showcasing the adventures of Dark Mouse. He’s a jerk. I’ll be drawing more of him. He’s making me.
Of all the things you’ve ever made, zine-related or otherwise, what’s your one favorite?
I produce the indie comic book “140” where I take tweets sent to me and use them in the book. All contributors get their names in the book and I’ve been lucky to have creators I admire contribute.
Name three of your influences and how they affected your work. 
David Mack’s work made me want to paint. David Choe’s made me want to vandalize. David Ellis’ made me want to play an instrument.
What do you do when you’re not creating and how does it help or harm what you do artistically?
I’m a connoisseur of burritos. Burritos never hurt… Well, not right away.
