2018 Vendors: Lawrence Lindell, Tiny Joys/GRAPH(feeties)/Wordling/Plankton Press, Nobody’s Daughter Zine
I’m a cartoonist and art educator from California. I make comics and art for Black Women, Black People, People of Color, Queer Folks, Folks With Mental Health Issues and me.
Tiny Joys/GRAPH(feeties)/Wordling/Plankton Press
I'm a poet/cartoonist and make a mini zine Tiny Joys, a submission-based walking zine, GRAPH(feeties), and a one-off drawing-for-writers zine, Wordling. I grew up in California, but have been living in Arizona for over 25 years, teaching at ASU, writing, and drawing. I live with my family in Tempe. My book, By the Forces of Gravity, a cartoon/free verse memoir, came out this past June (launched at Wasted Ink Zine Distro!)
When I'm feeling low and overwhelmed, I make an issue of Tiny Joys, so I can (1) focus on things that bring me joy and (2) create a zine 100% designed to bring joy to all who read it. GRAPH(feeties) features hybrid art/writing and a love of walking. My book, By the Forces of Gravity, was created with love in mind. Set in 1970s Berkeley, it's a story of friendship, adventure and loss, done in cartoons and free verse poetry. I'll be bringing my 100-year-old Multigraph Press, so people can make their own postcards to send to people they love. It's a great machine and lots of fun to share.
Nobody’s Daughter Zine
Cut & paste junky. I’m Colette , born in Los Angeles , Raised one Mexico (Guanajuato) to be exact .. I’ve always loved zines but didn’t start making my own until the last couple of years! I’m also a musician , so I spend a lot of my time playing music too! I was in PHX/ Tempe on tour with my previous band earlier this year and absolutely loved it! Would love to return for this zine fest! Also I have a 9yr old daughter and I’m stoked to start a kids zine line in the near future !
My zines and perspectives don’t pretend to be anything but honest.. love to collaborate and trade zines ! Also pen pals welcome !
