Zine Making as a Self-Publishing Adventure with Luis Blackaller (In Spanish)

Luis Blackaller, a.k.a. Cartoon Distortion (he/him), is an artist and filmmaker from Mexico City with an interest in public space, issues of representation and diversity in popular culture, the life-cycles of narrative colonialism, and good old fashioned cinema. Luis lives in Los Angeles, where he self-publishes his personal work with a simple mission in mind: to express his vision of Latin American imagination and life in Mexico City.

Focusing on my personal experience as a street photographer and graphic artist, I will describe how I learned to use zines and self-publishing to bring new life and meaning to my art. I will discuss a few sources of inspiration, techniques and approaches in my own zine making process, and I will follow up with a few recipes and advice to help inspire those interested in making their own zines.
