What was the inspiration for creating your first zine?

In 2007 I was at a basement noise show in Chicago and I started talking to another person there who had brought a zine of doodles to give to one of the performers that night, who was also a comics artist. He convinced me that although I didn't feel like a very accomplished artist yet, I could be making my own zines to share my work with others.

What is your favorite part of making zines?

Drawing comics and putting them online is fun, but there's something about actually assembling and holding a physical collection of them - a zine - that feels more meaningful. Creating a tangible object to hold onto and give to friends and maybe stumble upon years later, something about that feels fun and exciting.
