pimpkillah: the retribution
third issue of pimpkillah in the works!
pimpkillah attended our biggest show to date, wondercon in anaheim, ca. not only was it large and in charge, being in artist's alley gave me a great opportunity to meet such amazing talented folks and get some really great advice. pimpkillah shall definitely return with a new issue by then!
ah, our second la zine fest! two years in a row pimpkillah has had an amazing time tabling at lazf. great space at helms bakery. wonderful creators as always and the lazf crew put on a fantastic show. pimpkillah can't wait for next year's la zine fest - (http://lazinefest.com/2013/12/07/get-to-know-your-zinester-pimpkillah/
the first weekend of december i traveled up north to berkeley, ca to represent pimpkillah at east bay alternative book and zine fest. it was my first time in the berkeley area, i had a wonderful time meeting other creators and readers. i tabled with my favorite zine team piltdownlad, with kelly dessaint and irina dessaint. i can't wait to table again with them at la zinefest! check out the site for ebabz here: http://www.eastbayalternativebookandzinefest.com/
this month pimpkillah ventured out to redlands, ca to table at ie zine quest or also known as inland empire zine fest. the venue was definitely the most unique and awesome pimpkillah has ever exhibited within. we were in the rustic alleyway next to augie's coffee shop. once again i met awesome creators of all sorts, got my palm read, and even read my personal poetry for the first time ever. in other words, an overall fucking great experience to say the least. check out more info here:
and there's me and my great friend brodie hubbard who creates the zine fair dig - http://www.fairdig.com/=- and hosts The Shakey Town Radio Hour!
