Below is an interview with Jason Poland, one of the many exhibitors at the 2011 Zine Fest Houston.
What is your favorite part of ZineFest?
It’s a party! If comic festivals were like Ninja Turtles, ZineFest would be Michaelangelo.
What are your favorite zines/minicomics?
What will be at your table at this years ZineFest?
At my table you’ll find the Robbie and Bobby mini books, and some really cool hand screened t-shirts. I’ll have a special ZineFest discount on the shirts! I’m also sharing half my table with Film Monitor! It’s good to have a buddy at these things.
What other creative ventures do you have besides creating zines?
I post Robbie and Bobby comics five days a week online, and I’ve recently gotten into silk screening. I plan to print more shirts and some posters soon!
What new projects are you working on this year?
I’m working on a collaborative comic book with Chris Sweet, and I’m drawing a three page comic for the next issue of NANO Fiction. They’re bigger than anything I’ve worked on before! Very exciting and challenging stuff.
