Portland Zine Symposium / Exhibitor Interviews  / PZS 2017 EXHIBITOR INTERVIEWS: Nik Adams


This year PZS will have different exhibitors Saturday and Sunday. You will find Nik Adams on Sunday at table 42B.
1-How did you get into zines? OR How were you introduced to zines?
From the first zine I saw, I was struck that this was the best form to express myself.
2-If you didn’t make zines, what do you think you’d be doing?
If zines were not available I would still be looking for a way to expose my art to an audience.
3-What are your inspirations?
I am inspired by the misfits who have sung their unvarnished soul to generations after their time ( Van Gogh, Nietzsche, Walt Whitman).
4-What projects do you have lined up for 2017?
Going through old journals and pulling drawings and paintings telling of my journey to now.
5-Our theme for this year is the Apocalypse. What 3 things would you want to have with you to survive?
Should I survive the apocalypse I hope to have 1) a livable environment, 2) means of survival, 3) agreeable companions.
