San Anto Zine Fest - 10/5/19

Art by  Shelby Criswell !

I was thrilled to be part of San Anto Zine Fest (SAZF) on October 5, 2019. The organizers are super bad ass women who have created the largest zine fest in San Antonio, TX.  Read my piece in Texas Monthly about the fest!

The beautiful brains behind SAZF: Natasha Hernadez, nurse, writer, and co-publisher of St. Sucia and Isabel Ann Castro, illustrator and co-publisher of St. Sucia; Suzy González, visual artist and co-publisher of Yes Ma’am Zine; Ana Ortiz, poet and co-publisher of La Liga Zine and Isabel Cepeda, visual/sound artist and co-publisher of La Liga Zine. Also, Emma Hernandez at SAPL helped make this fest happen.

This was my first time vending in San Antonio, TX. Also, I led a workshop at SAZF along with my sister who is an Art Therapist! Our session was titled “Beyond Treat Yo Self: Self-Care Zine Workshop” in the Latino Collection and Resource Center.

Vending at LAZF 2018

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:
