Chicago Zine Fest And Give Away!!!

My good friends Rachel and Rosie illustrated a zine by local zinester Karen Haringa Karens writing style is really relatable, funny, and some times heartbreaking.

Santa Pants is an embarrassing true story about a childhood memory involving poop, with wonderful linoleum print illustrations by Rosie & Rachel.

Rosie, Rachel, Nate and I decided to take a trip to the Chicago Zine Fest to peddle their zine and also for inspiration!

Rachel got a chance to trade with some of her favorite artists!

For more pic’s check out my flickr.

I bought/traded for some really cool zines plus it was just fun to be in Chicago on such a beautiful spring day (:

I’m giving away 2 copies of Santa Pants Comment to Enter!!!

I will select 2 winners at random in 4 days (march 17)
