And now for some of my favorite moments from Chicago Zine Fest 2013.
Headed to Chicago tomorrow morning with a whole lot of booty for Chicago Zine Fest! I will have the usual comics/perzines, including a new collaborative zine called Your First, which features stories and comics about first albums. If you’re attending or tabling at CZF, come say hello to me! I’ll be tabling at 75a! Can’t wait to be back in the Midwest!
Laying out a collaborative zine about first albums for Chicago Zine Fest. From left to right: Drew Damron and Mark Hensley.
Kerri Radley hails from Philadelphia and writes a perzine that examines her experience as a deaf person. It’s a sassy, informative, and comical exploration of deaf identity, disability politics, everyday annoyances, and the blessing of silence.
Kerri is a 2013 Chicago Zine Fest Invited Guest and will be participating in CZF’s Friday March 8th Panel “Writing about Health, Disability, and Accessibility in Zines: A Panel with Kerri Radley, Maranda Elizabeth, and Dave Roche at the Conaway Center, Columbia College” from 1pm - 3 pm. Kerri will also be tabling at Chicago Zine Fest’s Zine Exhibition March 9 at Columbia College Chicago.
You can find Kerri online: Website, Etsy, Tumblr, and Facebook.
If you’re going to Chicago Zine Fest this year, make sure to check out my friend Kerri’s zine (Deafula) and “Writing about Health, Disability, and Accessibility in Zines,” which is the panel discussion she will be participating in on March 8th.
Working on the second issue of “Grow Up!” This panel is a mix between Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” and Macauley Culkin’s “Home Alone” face.
Philly Zine Fest is tomorrow! I’ve got a new batch of Grin & Bear It ready to go! See you there!
OH, HEY. THIS IS FOR SALE. BUY IT HERE.
Richmond Zine Fest was a lot of fun! I was very grateful for all the positive feedback and support I received while there. Richmond friends, if you were not able to pick up a copy of Grin & Bear It at RZF, there are a few copies of that and Grow Up! at Velocity Comics.
As always, you can purchase copies of my comics, including the newly finished Grin & Bear It here.
Looking forward to Philly Zine Fest at the end of this month (October 27th)!
Grin & Bear It is finally complete! Pick up a copy at Richmond Zine Fest tomorrow! These comics will also be available for purchase online next week. Can’t wait to get these into your hands!
