I began tabling at Chicago Zinefest a few years ago debuting “Kitty’s Guide to Chicago Coffee”, a comic “food travelogue” about Chicago’s different coffeehouses and coffee culture.
The incredible community and feedback I got from the Chicago audience made me want to go back every year. This year is no different, it was exciting, fun and full of pizza (there was pizza).
I started my journey into animation through the realm of comics, I started drawing bad little comics in high school on pencil using dot matrix printer paper. Years later, I found a love for animation through the stories I would make on comics.
The Chicago Comics Community, including that of “Let’s Make Comics Chicago” , CAKE Chicago, and Chicago Zinefest helped me rediscover the art of comics and helped me become a better artist overall.
Thank you again for everyone that made it and met up with me this year. If you were not able to make it, I encourage you to try to make it next year!
