PZS Exhibtor: dylpdx

We’ll be posting short interviews each day with the many exhibitors tabling at the 2016 Zine Symposium. Come meet all of these amazing zinesters, Saturday July 9th at Ambridge Event Center here in Portland, OR. Remember, there is only 1 day of tabling at this year’s Symposium. On Sunday July 10th, you’ll find us hosting a Skillshare day at the Independent Publishing Resource Center. Keep checking in with the site for additional exhibitor interviews, workshop and panel schedules, and fun events leading up to the Symposium.


Where do you live?

I live in Vancouver AKA Vantucky

If this is your first time tabling at Portland Zine Symposium, what excites you most about Portland and its zine community?

This will be my second time. I enjoy and appreciate the less commercial aspect to this show. The art-centric focus is much more appealing than the traditional comic shows that i usually try to attend/table at.

Share with us an image of you creating and/or your creative space. What is your zine-making process?
draw comics and photocopy and staple…it’s pretty much that simple…the complicated part is the page layouts and actual drawing and writing (what i lovingly refer to as drawthoring)

How do you keep inspired?

Draw everyday…even if it’s only 5 minutes…and write down those crazy ideas that seem worthless at the time…they end up being the best ones.
If you could give your 16th year old teen self a zine, which one would it be?
Not really a zine per se, but Stolen Sharpee Revolution was really informative and inspiring.
What are you working on for this year’s Portland Zine Symposium? Share with us some photos of your new work!

A short little thing…I have longer form projects that probably won’t make it this year.
