Hate Paste


Mostly comics and drawing-based zines about longing, loss, and the various ways in which people fail themselves and each other. I like drawing reference books and almost anything that reflects thought and feeling. Pals and strangers have called my stuff funny and sad, but it means the most to me when someone says it feels genuine.

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

I started tabling fests because my friends let me share their table space at SDZF in like 2013? Not really sure why else but they've all since stopped doing it but I haven't for some reason and now it's 5 years later... maybe I just don't know any better yet?

What is your biggest challenge in making zines?

Finding the motivation to finish things in a way that's satisfying. Not lagging on projects is hard. Time slips away so fast when yr procrastinating... There's a 50 word limit that is enforced on these responses so I'm trying to reach that right now because usually my answers to these are pretty short.

How do you feel that are zines important in terms of independent media and publishing?

Zines are important because anyone can make a zine about anything. The barrier for entry is low so people can make something and share it in a tangible way and have it be validated, or at least seen -especially if other avenues of art have been historically inaccessible or unavailable to them.
