As an artist, I have a lot to say, or feel the need to say. Zines are an open outlet for me to write and draw my stories. They're meant to be a more intimate experience with me, the artist. I don't feel judged by my zines, and I have seen that making them are rewarding.
I feel no shame in sharing my story in zines. They're personal, but strangers can read them, and hopefully, can find some humor and help in them. As a Chinese American, with a lot to unpack, I want to make zines for people going through what I'm going through, and let them know that they're not alone.
