Why do you make zines?

I have been a drawing as far back as I can remember and tend to draw stuff that brings a smile to my face. Drawing has helped carry me through both the good and bad of life. I love spreading this smile to others by sharing my drawings and zines with the local community.

What was the inspiration for creating your first zine?

My first zine began with one of my brief obsessions. One day, shortly after Halloween, I started drawing bats uncontrollably. I couldn’t get enough and soon began to check out books from the library to learn more about them. The more I read, the more I was amazed at these bizarre creatures. My drawings morphed into illustrations of interesting facts from these books. I crafted everything together into a story, into a zine called Bat Facts!
