GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINESTER: Tori Holder
What was your first zine about and when was it made?
I was featured in several little zines and minicomic things before I did a whole zine by myself. It was November of 2010, sort of a diary comic thing of the month, just to see what I could make… it had some clever points, some decent art, but just a lot of bitterness. I think that’s the hardest part to look back on, not the “I made this, it’s awful!” but the “Wow, I really did not hold back on meaness did I?”

Describe your most recent zine.

I’m currently working on one that’s comic vignettes on the themes of time and memory and the malaise that accompany them (that’s the new thing I guess, I went from being bitter to a bummer), so it’s really really recent, and I’m excited to put together small works in a way they can interact with each other. It’s my preferred way of creating, just kind of a lot of one-offs and them sorting through them and finding themes and connections. Also, it’s generally how I find out what’s going on in my mind, making what it feels like I need to make and then piecing through what was recordable and why it mattered. I feel like temporally I’m existing in this area past however much future I’d thought up, so trying to tie those feelings to known identities and events is coming up a lot.
