Vending at LAZF 2018

For the first time ever, I took my art to the West Coast. I was a proud vendor at the 7th Annual L.A. Zine Fest on May 27, 2018. It was a dream come true to share my work with the L.A. community. I met some of my favorite creators from around the country such as St. Sucia, Breena Nuñez Peralta, Frijolera Press, Brown and Proud Press who also vended at the festival. Check out the exhibitor list here. Plus, I gave a workshop on the creative process behind my zine "Vos Cipota" during the festival.

Big List of Thank You's:

  • LAZF organizers for believing in my work and letting me part of this monumental event
  • Everyone who stopped by my table and supported the festival
  • Workshop attendees: it was a joy to chat with you and share insights
  • My sister and Suzy for their eternal support

About The Event:
