Here’s your second heaping helping of double interview goodness today as we get the skinny on Dalton Stark, whose table at ZFH you can now find using our handy map!
Why do you create zines?
Zines are great way to take cheap paper and a pen and make something awesome. So mainly I make zines as another venue of expressing my art.
How did you become interested in zines?
I was first inspired to make my first zine in high school when I saw that AndyRistaino (character designer of adventure time) made zines. And I just think he’s the most radical guy ever.
- What is something that you’re looking forward to about the 2013 Zine Fest Houston?
Meeting the other great zinesters of the Houston area and beyond, and hopefully getting my work into the hands of someone who really needs it.
What made you decide to participate in the 2013 Zine Fest Houston?
I recently created a zine in my down time and brought a copy to my English professor who informed me of the event. It was such an awesome coincidence there was no way I was going to pass it up.
What will be on your table at this year’s Zine Fest?
- As far as zines go I will have “Lot Lizard issue 1″ along side my most recent zine ” Dinoacolypse”.
What other creative ventures do you have besides making zines?
Besides making zines I do a lot of illustrative work as well as artwork itself. Which generally consists of the same things as my zines. Dinosaurs, beautiful women, and heavy metal.
What is the concept behind your zine/zines?
“Lot Lizard issue 1” is essentially a collection of intergalactic freehand illustrations I made, featuring a cast of weird looking characters, creatures, and robots.
