GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINESTER: Yumi Sakugawa
Describe your work in two sentences or less.
Short comic stories and illustrated essays about the cosmos, meditation, longing, memory, and time. Personal anxieties, desires and dreams disguised in the form of beta fish, one-eyed monsters, bunny ghosts, teenage girls and extraterrestrial visitors.
How did you get involved in making zines?
I made my first coimc zine in 2008 before i even knew what a zine was. And then two years later I had the good fortune of making friends with artists who were very involved in the zine community, and that was when I learned for the first time that people actually went to different zine conventions in different cities sharing their zines with other zine-makers from all over the country. I went to my first zine convention in Sacramento in 2010 and I have been hooked ever since.
