Encuentro # 2

Encuentro # 2 is ready (and already made it’s debut at the NYC Feminist Zine Fest back in march)! Yes, this post is way overdue 🙂

It was one of the most challenging printing experiences I’ve had to date. However, I learned so much about the printing process, my limits, and strengths. Most importantly I found how to make time to create, and finally printed at home for the first time. Needless to say, I’m proud of this issue.

I was a lot more successful at merging the image and text than I was with Encuentro #1, but it’s an ongoing challenge. Due to the size and format of Encuentro # 2 I didn’t get as in depth as I would have liked. Some things to consider on the next issue would be: 1-changing the format to one that’s more suitable to a large amount of text or 2-finding ways to communicate using less text.

6-Word Memoir

6-Word Memoir

This is a little old, but still worth posting. Made it for my thesis class senior year. It’s my 6-word memoir, and it’s featured on the website!

The illustration is about being arrested at a political action freshman year of college. It might seem cheesy, but it was one of the best experiences. Being in jail wasn’t fun in any way, but I made life-long friends and switched majors and enrolled in a dual-degree program.
