New PZS Logos by Eileen Chavez!
Portland Zine Symposium is honored to have Eileen create new logo designs! It’s folks like Eileen that contribute greatly to the energy, vitality and creativity of what the Portland zine community represents. We hope you like the new look of PZS!
Eileen Chavez is Portland-based comic artist and illustrator, whose whimsical storytelling is self-described as “ink blobs.” While they originally hail from Oakland (CA), Eileen has been involved in the Portland zine community for a few years now, tabling the last several years, and this year joining the organizing crew.
As a queer person of color, Eileen is passionate about zine making and self publishing as a format that gives agency and a platform to voices often silenced and pushed to the margins. Eileen performs their interactive comics around town, often encouraging the audience to dance and contort one’s body like Eileen’s illustrated creatures.
Eileen is a member of the local drawing group, Sound Grounds Stompin’ Crew, as well as a frequent contributor to the Portland based Women of Color Zine Collective.
