Today and tomorrow Saturday mark the 2nd annual Chicago Zine Fest. Building on the success of last year's event, this year's edition is more than double the size, with the number of tables going from 45 last year to 115 tables for this Saturday, with well over 200 zinesters, writers, and artists represented. Exhibitors are coming in from around the country and the world, including some from New Zealand. I took part in it last year and had a great time. This year should be even better.
There'll be events at Columbia College, 826CHI, and at Quimby's today Friday. Saturday will be the major zine show/exhibition at Columbia College, with workshops and films as well. There'll also be an after party in Pilsen on Saturday night. All info on times and events is posted here.
Some of the zine publishers and artists I'm looking forward to include Tim Pigott's Parking Block Publishing, Lilli Carre, Connect Force, Golden Age, Microcosm Publishing, Grime Time, and Spudnik Press.
