Making something out of nothing:
Last September I tabled my first ZineCon in Kansas City, Missouri. I was excited because it took submitting an application and being accepted. I had left the Zine Community in Phoenix when we moved to the heartland and I was a little afraid I wouldn’t find the queers and the outcasts in a place where most of the country’s grain is grown.
I don’t know how your process works, but there are times when my brainwave activity kicks into superdrive and the ideas come, and there is an outpouring of art.
This happened a little over a week ago. I’m finally starting to decompress from all the activity, but I got some serious work done.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve been getting back into zine culture.
Zines have existed for a very long time. The recent history is traced back to the 1930’s and a way for science fiction writers and artists to put their work out in the public bypassing the publishers.
