Get to Know Your Zinester: Post-Care World Series

post careDescribe your zine style. What can we expect to find at your table?
It will be a  mixture of my works as well as other artists that  I’m sharing the table with namely Adam Roth, Andrew Felix, and  David Aguilar.There will be books, comix, zines, prints, maybe some music, shirts, buttons and some original art. The new issue of Post-Care will be there too!

Where do you work on your zines? 
We all work on it at our own homes or coffeeshops but sometimes we mainly all get together at the Malohaus where I have a studio set-up and materials we can use.

What are your three favorite small-press/DIY publications?
I like mainly comix zines but iIdo read zines -just cant think of any at the top of my head. Everything that Drippy Bone Books puts out is fantastic -and im always impressed the quality that Keenan puts in producing his books.  Pop-Ook by Hamo Bahnam is another one that i really like and those books by the prolific JT Steiny always grab me every single fucking time I see them.

What advice would you give to a first-time zinester or to an aspiring zinemaker?
Make TIME to do it and Most of us are really just over-thinking about the the things we want to do that we dont realize THAT is what is hindering us from being able to do it. The beauty of zines is that it is a really personalized  outlet of expression -so it can practically be however you want it to be. Reading existing ones also helps you get ideas and inspiration. Then find a good printer to work with. Just keep doing it! Make a zine every week!

What’s the best thing that ever happened to you because of zines?
Meeting lots of awesome talented people whom i respect and admire and also getting inspired by all of them to get better in all that i do. At the moment the biggest thing that I am learning after all the previous work I have done is how to value the whole process on how zines/books are made  and give importance to the different steps that affect its quality.
