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?: I make humor comic zines and children’s books for adults. The comics are inspired those with pretty screwed up senses of humor, like Nicholas Gurewich and Arthur Bradford. My illustrations and inspired by Gorey, Seymour Chwast, and Remy Charlip. The storybooks for adults deal with modern social relevance, but are displaced in a surrealist, absurdist world. Themes get pretty fablesque but hold onto a sense of grittiness with a good amount of playful gore.

Get to Know Your Zinester features collages of the 2016 Fest exhibitors.
Clockwise from left; the zinesters, their work, more work, and a source of inspiration!
