Orange Beanie Press
I am a skateboarder, artist, advocate and compassionate human, in no particular order. Almost resigned to calling the desert home after about a decade of habitation, I was raised across the country and around the world, making the hometown concept pretty foreign. I make two main titles, One Push and Over The Shoulder. One Push is a skate-centric cut-paste style zine with photos and other art inspired by my favorite thing. Over The Shoulder has no real guidelines, each has been themed differently and formatted freely. I will also be releasing my first book, Overheard At The Museum this year, a comedic look at the public looking at art.
I create some zines to chronicle specific times, trips, themes, or feelings. Some are strict and formal, some are aimed to be visual poetry. I am quite excited to have a table this year because I plan on releasing a book that I have been working on for more than a year. This is the perfect place to share with the community, since the community helped make it!

My name is Brandon, I am a local artist and I am from Goodyear Arizona. I make the Sketchfolo Zine it shows off my favourite sketchbook drawings that people normally wouldn't see!
Phx Zine Fest is a great opportunity to show, sell and connect with the community. I had a wonderful experience last year and I am lookong forward to an even better one thid year!
My name is Tianne Pitz, writer and speaker of a wild bunch of thoughts from my daily life that began at a young age. Cali born, raised by way of the Bay, tried out country living in Pennsylvania and crashed landed in Arizona. I have penned 4 Zines thus far. The first is The Melancholy Musings of a Misfit Girl which has handwritten poems, prose and doodles. The second is Love Is A (sometimes)Distorted Journey with handwritten poems, prose and bursts of positive affirmations. My third is a short horror story simply titled Creature. And the fourth is a short love story titled Unforseen Love. All Zines are from my personal experiences in this crazy journey that we call life.
I write from the heart. My Zines were initially created for taking others into a deeper part of my heart that most of the time is shielded by a seashell. My short stories are meant to invoke thought and haunt you on some level. I would look forward to tabling at the PHX Zine Fest 2018 so that I may share my words on a personal level with others. I would love to present more exciting Zines and a few art pieces for fun and see how far this amazing journey can go!
