“I am writing from the stand point that we are not being sold on this cookie cutter idea of how we are supposed to look, act, dress, and be.”
Why do you like zines?
I like zines because the give creativity and voice back into the creator’s hands. I think a lot of people feel that unless they get published by a traditional publisher, that there is no point in them every creating something like a zine. I think zines show that people can take their own creations back into their own hands, and have it come from their voice-and not what a publisher thinks should be said based on sales quotas.
What is the concept behind your zine/zines?
My zines touch on feminist issues that are relevant to women today. I chose the title “Unsellable” because I think a lot of women don’t agree with how society and the media views us. I am writing from the stand point that we are not being sold on this cookie cutter idea of how we are supposed to look, act, dress, and be.
What is something you’re looking forward to about the 2012 Zine Fest Houston?
I just moved to Texas and am really looking forward to meeting others in the Texas zine community.
What other creative ventures do you have besides making zines?
Currently I am working on a book of poetry. I also paint, draw, and am getting into lomography and sculpting.
What new projects are you working on this year?
I am in the planning stage of starting my own distro.
