translating the compressions and swells in my chest ~ my work is pretty immediate. I usually draw something everyday, based on whatever it is i'm feeling or experiencing in that moment. my zines end up being compilations of drawings and fragments of text based around what's going on in my life. So.. "compressions and swells!"

When did you start making zines ... and why?

I was first inspired to make zines after attending the LA Zine Fest in 2016. It was my first zine fest and I just really dug the variety of awesome work I saw and artists I met. I made it a goal to make some zines and table there myself in 2017! So I haven't been doing it super long.

What is your biggest challenge in making zines?

To be honest I don't feel like there's anything too "challenging" about it. I guess that's one thing I love about the scene. There aren't really that many gatekeepers. It's fairly low cost to print and low stress. The challenge to me mainly comes in liking your own work that you drew two years ago but are still selling lol.

What is your favorite part of making zines?

For sure the people! Not only the other artists that I've met through zine fests, but the people who come to the events. I love talking to people at my table, seeing what the purchased, and hearing what their take aways from my zines are. It is super fun <3
