Who: Ivy Rose Zines
What would you like people to know about your zines?
Since my zines all fall into the category of a perzine I’m always trying to grow as a person and I hope that translates with each new perzine I make. Both in terms of artwork, storytelling, and my outlook on the world.
Tell us about a zine maker or zine that has had an impact on you.
Definitely Asswipe zine by Vanessa X for giving perzines so much recognition in the Bay Area, Mission Mini Comix for spreading Harm Reduction messages through comic form, d.s.press because no one writes zines like they do, and finally Deth P. Sun because I’ve loved the stuff they’ve made for so long.
What are you looking forward to at L.A. Zine Fest 2019?
Coming back to my Southern California community and sharing all the zines I’ve made during my time so far in the Bay. I’m also looking forward to drawing free portraits of lovely SoCal folks.
Make sure to check out Ivy Rose Zines’ table at L.A. Zine Fest 2019 on Sunday, May 26th at Helms Bakery in Culver City!
