Yumi Sakugawa is a comic book artist and illustrator, launching her book “I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You” at Skylight Books in Los Feliz on Thursday, December 6th. Adam Bernales is a photographer, owner of Seite Books (a bookstore in East L.A.), and organizer of the Eastside Zine Market, which takes place at Hazard Park Armory on Sunday, December 8th. Yumi and Adam join BFH to discuss zines, childhood reading adventures, the bookstore industry, cooperative subcultures, deep platonic love, and nerding out over printing supplies.
Hey, I did a podcast with Shakeytown Radio and chatted with host / zine-maker Brodie Foster Hubbard and Seite bookstore owner Adam Bernales. Thanks for having us Brodie!
The 3rd annual L.A. Zine Fest is a FREE event celebrating independent publishers, comix illustrators, writers and DIY culture. You can help make it happen!
Some of you may know, that the L.A. Zine Fest is organized by only four people who meet on a weekly basis in hopes of making our annual event better with each passing year.
As our public support grows so does our expenses, which ultimately comes out of pocket from the attendees, exhibitors, and us organizers. To prevent these expenses from being passed on to ANYONE, we spend a lot of time organizing fundraisers to keep The L.A. Zine Fest alive and running.
Thank you to everyone who has believed in the importance of independent publishing, we are nothing without you!
We are really coming down to the wire, folks, and your help is vital in helping us to reach our goal! Any contribution to our campaign is a contribution toward the writers, artists, poets, photographers, cartoonists, comix artists, and general weirdos who make zines. If you are reading this, chances are that you are one of those people, or you know some and like them a lot. If you are able to, please consider making a donation—any donation!—to the campaign before time runs out!
Throw some dollaz to support L.A. Zine Fest 2014 Indiegogo campaign. Doooo it.
