WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT THE ZINES YOU CREATE AND/OR WHY YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TABLING AT L.A. ZINE FEST 2016?: Hey there, My name is Anna and I put out a zine called Biff Boff Bam Sock, which has evolved from comics/illustrations to aesthetically pleasing educational guides. Issue 4 is about my experience getting married at city hall. Half per zine, half practical advice on weddings/family/love. (seen here: http://issuu.com/annajobeck/docs/bbbs4) Issue 5 is a basic primer to personal finance with a slick transparent vinyl cover (seen here: https://issuu.com/annajobeck) Issue 6 is a bare bones reference guide intermediate Spanish grammar, clocking in a 40 pages. The content is finished, just waiting until after the holidays to print. A side project was my riso’d mini called duoodles, taking some of the odder phrases from the language learning app Duolingo and illustrating them (seen here: http://annajobeck.storenvy.com/collections/297470-comics-zines-artist-books/products/14565771-duoodles) This is my first LAZF, and I’m looking forward to meeting new people, getting a break from Chicago’s extended winter, and making lots and lots of fruitful trades!
