First Time PZS Exhbitor: Zebra Pizza

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?

We live in Long Beach, California! -Ziba & Jon-o

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

Yes, what excites me most about Portland and its zine community are the circulating zines in your public library! I have one back home in Long Beach I helped start in November of 2015 thanks to systems like in your city that have been doing it for many years! -Ziba

What is your zine-making process? 

Here is a picture of my creative space:

I help run a maker space at my public library and I run zine workshops for the public to get creative! My process is to take recycled reads and cut up my favorite images in collage style making sure to include zebras! -Ziba

How do you keep inspired? 

I keep inspired by going to various zine fests and seeing the various exhibitors. Meeting zinesters in person and perusing their zines is super inspiring, they made it, I can too!

If you could give your 16th year old teen self a zine, which one would it be? 

The one I got at that age. My friend Reena in high school did the 1st zine I ever read. She called it Luna in Tuna & asked friends to contribute. It was super cute and pushed me to sign up for our first exhibitors table in 2012 at LA Zine Fest!
