Dreams of Donuts has been a comic style chronicle of my life for the last 11 years, where I share my experiences with punk houses, shows, traveling, activism, as well as discussions on various emotional struggles I have gone through. Although my zines are about myself, I feel like they are also a story of the punk/weirdo communities that I am a part of.

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

I started making zines in 2007. At the time, the zine community felt pretty small, and a lot of ordering and advertising was done through the mail. The more zines I discovered, the more I fell in love, and making my own zine felt like a way to participate. When I first started I didn't have any kind of vision for what would come from making a zine, but now I feel like my zine has become my most important art project.

What is your biggest challenge in making zines?

Making my zine comic style is extremely time consuming, since the artwork takes so long to complete, so although I write about my life, the stories are usually outdated by the time I have an issue ready to be printed. Also I usually have to plan on around 3 months at least to be able to make a new issue.

What is your favorite part of making zines?

One of my favorite things about making zines is that I do mine comic style, because although it is time consuming, it also provides me with a lot of opportunities to draw things that are out of my element or that I wouldn't normally draw.

However probably my favorite thing about making a zine is to have something to offer in a way where I'm intimately sharing myself with you.
