ZFH: Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you’ll be showing at ZFH 2015!
Kyle Smith: Writer/artist displaying short comics and booklets.
ZFH: What is the future of zines in this new and rapidly digitizing world?
KS: Going digital, just like everything else. If you’re talking about zines as a self published and produced medium, I’d argue that’s already happened with the rise of blogs, personal websites, “online presence,” etc. Who needs to publish a zine when you have a WordPress and an Instagram?
ZFH: Were you an analog to digital transition or were you a BB born in the tech age? How does technology and recent technological developments affect your zine-making practice?
KS: Never knew a world without Xerox copying and digital photo manipulation. I’m for whatever technology gets these dumb ideas out of my head and into the world the fastest.
ZFH: What in your opinion is the best invention of the last 30 years?
ZFH: What in your opinion is the worst invention of the last 30 years?
KS: Quizno’s six-dollar-eleven-inch sub.
ZFH: How will you best honor our cyber overlords?
KS: Devote rest of life to solving robot-cancer.
