Zine Fest is Coming!

 Robert Boyd

This Saturday, at the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, Zine Fest Houston returns for its latest iteration. It has been running every year, except for last year for obvious reasons, since 2004. You may have gone to the Orange Show in years past, but this is a brand new thing. There is a large parking lot and covered structure behind the Orange Show structure and Smither Park. That’s where the festival will be held. The space is covered but open to the elements, but the weather forecast is excellent.

This was Zine Fest in 2013, held at the printing museum. The Printing Museum seems a logical choice for hosting a zine festival, but its crowded warren of rooms is not idea for setting up tables.

This is me manning my booth in 2018, when they held the festival at Lawndale Art Center.

As I remind readers at the end of every post that I have a Patreon account. There are two levels of support—”nymphs and dryads” pay $1/month. “Great Gods” pay $5/month. Great Gods get a premium for their support—they get one zine, produced by me, mailed to them free of charge. I am working on the zine now—I will be printing it up to sell at Zine Fest Houston and to mail out to my patrons. I haven’t physically produced copies (working on that today), but it has been written, illustrated, and designed.

And I want to preview to cover here.

I hope I will see all of you there at Zine Fest Houston this Saturday, November 13th, noon-6pm!

(And if you can’t make it to Zine Fest, I will be putting this zine up on my Storenvy store. And if you’d like it for free, you can getting it by supporting my work by becoming a patron.)
