Who: Avy Jetter
What would you like people to know about your zines?
My zines are meant as a starting point and a beginning to conversation and not as a one time only ready but to share and express ideas and relate to one another.
Tell us about a zine maker or zine that has had an impact on you.
Ajuan Mance has had a great impact in that not only do they make zines and comics but they work a 9-5 and organize events and they help out in the greater community. Their work is beautifully rendered and tells so many stories that we do not often see in mainstream media. Their work as a teacher, communicator, and artist bridges the gap between underrepresented communities and the general art audience and I appreciate that and work to do the same with my art practice.
What are you looking forward to at L.A. Zine Fest 2019?
Meeting and sharing art, ideas, and reconnecting with folks that live and work in SoCal.
