What would you like people to know about the zines you create?
I enjoy writing the Suicidal Goldfish fiction zine series, because every issue makes the reader feel like part of Violet’s inner circle of friends.
This story is genuinely not a typical teenage love story, because the thread that strings everyone together is the sudden death of Léon the Suicidal Goldfish. I also, write poetry zines that are more personal and they are part of my everyday journal entries.
Why you are looking forward to tabling at L.A. Zine Fest 2017?
I enjoy meeting new zinesters and being inspired by the whole experience of what L.A. Zine Fest is. It is alway so fun to meet the zinesters that I follow on Instagram.
Who are three zinesters whose work inspires you?
I enjoy Yumi Sakugama’s zines they are so beautifully illustrated and her writing just touches my heart. Tuesday Bassen and Helen Jo their work is so cool.
