Who are you? Where do you come from? What zine do you make?
Hello, I'm Myke Marts (aka Splendid Disasters) from Long Beach, CA. I make an assortment of zines that have all different titles. Some of them are illustrated, some are photos, some are collaged... or sometimes all encompassing at the same time. My latest completed zine is "struggles are real"
What would you like people to know about the zines you create and/or why you are looking forward to tabling at Phx Zine Fest 2016?
I make an assortment of zines that serve as a vehicle to share my life experiences, thoughts, feelings, etc. I also make zines that pay homage to the subcultures that I am deeply rooted in, mostly being the surf and skateboard world. I love the process and the DIY aspect of them. It's pretty liberating to know that I can create something from beginning to end, by myself, unedited from an outside source. I'm looking forward to heading out to Phoenix for a ton of reasons! Getting to be a part of the first ever PHX Zinefest is such an honor and a privilege! Plus, I've never been to Arizona so i'm just pumped to see what it's all about, and also to meet a bunch of rad fellow zinesters who care about their community and support each other!
Questions? Comments? Concerns?
Can't wait for PHXZF!
