Who: Jillian Sandell
What would you like people to know about your zines?
I first started making zines in 2016 at the age of 51, though I had been reading them since the 1990s. The style of my zines is a combination of simple cartoon-style line drawings with text and collage, and the content is a mix of personal and political, including the aftermath of cancer treatment, living in the desert, social justice, everyday life, and dogs.
Tell us about a zine maker or zine that has had an impact on you.
Elise Bernal! Elise and I traded zines last year at LAZF. Her zines are amazing! Tender and beautiful and moving!
What are you looking forward to at L.A. Zine Fest 2019?
Last year was my first time tabling at LAZF and I spent almost all my time at my own table. This year I’m looking forward to taking breaks and checking out more of other people’s work too!
Make sure to check out Jillian Sandell’s table at L.A. Zine Fest 2019 on Sunday, May 26th at Helms Bakery in Culver City!
